Hungry? Why wait? Fort Stewart will launch a new Army food truck and kiosk program to strengthen the variety of dining options for Soldiers at Fort Stewart, Ga.
Fort Stewart is improving food programs, making food more accessible to Soldiers.
The food truck travels to multiple locations providing breakfast and lunch to Soldiers during their break hours. Breakfast is from 8 a.m. to 9:30 a.m and lunch is from 11:30 a.m to 1 p.m. Serving the barracks areas, in processing center, and motor pools, food trucks are part of a larger modern feeding and campaign to improve the Garrison feeding operations. The goal is to provide Soldiers with convenient and healthy meal options.
“Food here is more affordable and accessible than the shoppette, come to the kiosk or you can wait for the food truck to come to you,” said Spc. Oscar Ayala Culinary Specialist for 1st Battalion, 41st Field Artillery Regiment, 1st Armored Brigade Combat Team, 3rd Infantry Division. ”I can’t wait to serve troops at the revamped food truck and kiosk.”
The Outpost kiosk is a soldier operated program that extends the Garrison Dining Facilities to where Soldiers work and live. The new kiosk will be located at the Dining Facility Administration Center, building 207, across from the Marne Reception Center.
“Troops can use their meal card three times a day at the kiosk and we’re opening it up to the community,” said,” Spc. David Armstrong, Culinary Specialist with Headquarters Company, 3rd Brigade Support Battalion, 1st Armored Brigade Combat Team, 3rd Infantry Division. “Even married or single Soldiers who receive basic allowance for substance are allowed to shop here.”
The kiosk Grand Opening is set to open mid Feb 4, 2019. For more information on the Outpost kiosk and food trucks call (912) 767-7021 or visit www.facebbook.com/FtStewFoodTruck.com
