Dining Facility & Food Transformation
For more than 60 years, the Air Force has fed Airmen and their families through traditional dining facilities, clubs and snack bars. The Food Transformation Initiative offers contemporary and exciting dining experiences designed to mirror that of college campus style dining.
The FTI is an Air Force directive aimed to enhance food quality, variety and availability, while focusing on Airmen’s changing needs, lifestyles and culinary preferences. Additionally, the initiative strives to enhance the sense of base community while improving facilities and efficiency through decreasing operational costs and providing enhanced nutritious meals to maintain Cannon and its war-fighting capabilities.
“We are keeping up with our commander’s intent to provide an environment for Airmen and families to thrive. This will promote a community built on cohesion; if families wish to dine together at the new DFAC, they will not be restricted by rank or duty status” stated Maj. David Nuckles, 27th Special Operations Force Support Squadron.
