Abstract:

The results of a field feeding experiment demonstrated that a new consolidated feeding system designated XM-75 operating at the battalion level can reduce the number of cooks and K.P.s by 45 and 61, respectively, when compared to company level kitchens. The experimental system included new food preparation equipment, electrically powered labor savings devices, new modular shelters and new sanitation equipment. A significant improvement in the performance of the system was achieved. However, further testing is recommended to refine the kitchen design and prove a new distribution concept.
