SEYMOUR JOHNSON AIR FORCE BASE, N.C. --
The Seymour Johnson Air Force Base After Burner Flight Kitchen is set to close Feb. 11 until the Southern Eagle Dining Facility is reopened later this year.
The flight kitchen menu cannot support the new “Food 2.0” menu until the Southern Eagle Dining Facility has reopened, said Senior Master Sgt. Nichelle Jenkins, 4th Force Support Squadron sustainment services flight superintendent.
Food 2.0 is an Air Force initiative developed to enhance food quality, variety and availability of nutritious meals in providing and sustaining military force for wartime feeding operations and capabilities, said Jenkins. The initiative focuses on Airmen’s changing needs, lifestyles, customer preferences and greater access to meals as well as influencing a sense of community in the food service operation.
The flight kitchen will be a more accessible option for Airmen who support flightline operations.
