Fort Bragg is eating well thanks to the 82nd DSTB DFACTwo dining facilities on Fort Bragg have been honored with the Philip A. Connelly Award recognizing their tremendous culinary skills and support efforts.

The 82nd Division Special Troops Battalion Dining Facility (DFAC) and the U.S. Army Special operations Command DFAC were honored with the prestigious title for large and small garrisons, respectively. This is the first year that Fort Bragg's food services have been run by civilian contractors, and their first win.

Co-sponsored by the International Food Service Executive Association, the Philip A. Connelly Awards see dining facilities from numerous installations across the country competing against each other in a test of food preparation skills, nutrition, service, sanitation and overall taste.

David Morton of the North Carolina Food Service, the private company that manages both facilities, credits the wins to the talent and skills of the DFAC staff.

"It takes a lot of work to be the best at serving as many Soldiers as are served here on a daily basis," Morton told Army.mil. "When it comes to preparing for the competition, everyone is a winner. The staff gets great training, which means the Soldiers get great service."
