US Army Unveils Its Own Food Truck Program

FORT LEE, VA – Next time you’re out in the field training, you might not have to trek back to the dining facility when your stomach starts rumbling.

The Army is introducing its Food Truck Program, offering quick, fresh meals to troops in training and field environments.

Fort Lee’s Joint Culinary Center of Excellence rolled out the program for testing at the Virginia post. This week, with the testing phase complete, the food truck program will enter a six-month pilot program at Fort Stewart, Georgia.

Dubbed the Outpost, the food truck will offer breakfast, lunch and dinner, depending on the needs of the soldiers.

Some menu items include English muffins, breakfast sandwiches, paninis, wraps, burgers, salad bowls, noodle bowls, chips and fries.

“They’re quick-fire meals that can be done in a certain amount of time,” Sgt. 1st Class Carlton Hunter, of the 266 Quartermaster Battalion, said. “[Soldiers] have seven to 10 minutes to get their plates and be on their way.”
