Chow Hall details (Menus/planning)?

Postby battlemaster365 » Mon Nov 06, 2017 2:13 am

Gents:

With all our interest in food eaten in the field, we seem to have forgotten about food eaten on base, whether stateside or inside garrison.
Surely there must be members here who communicate regularly with servicemen whether logistical or combat who can lay their hands on pictures of menus or documents etc?

We know a bit too much about what is eaten outside the wire, how about inside the wire?
I'll start the ball rolling with this nice document
http://www.marines.mil/Portals/59/Publi ... 10.14M.pdf

The pertaining parts are in the back: around page 160

Excerpt
MENU ITEM MINIMUM STANDARD
Fresh Fruit Four types of assorted fruit daily; one
type will be seasonal fruit; rotate
choices
Hot Breakfast Cereal One type of hot cereal; rotate choices
Ready-to-Eat Cereal Three types of cereal; rotate choices
Ready-to-Eat Cereal One type of cereal that is nonpresweetened
and fortified with folic
acid, calcium, and iron; Rotate choices
Eggs to Order Patron choice
Assorted Omelets Patron choice
Hard Cooked Eggs Serve daily
Creamed Beef Serve daily
Breakfast Meats Two types of breakfast meats; rotate
choices
Potato Product Serve daily;
Pancakes, French Toast, or Waffles Rotate choices
Sweet Dough Pastry One sweet dough product daily; rotate

Of special interest is this line:
5. Not more than one gas-forming cooked vegetable such as cabbage,
cauliflower, broccoli, brussel sprouts, and dried beans and peas will be
offered per meal.

I add in also two pictures of food served in an SAF cookhouse (what americans would call a chow hall)

Now lets see what the nearest friendly chow hall has on its menu :lol:
