509th FSS needs YOU!

WHITEMAN AIR FORCE BASE, Mo. -- Your food service team here on Whiteman Air Force Base, Missouri, is engaged in a fierce competition, and you can help us bring home the trophy!

Whiteman AFB has been selected as a finalist for the Air Force John L. Hennessy Trophy, and a team will be on base Feb. 18-22 for our on-site evaluation. This is a prestigious award, not just for the food service program, but for the entire installation.

The evaluators will be judging total base support as one of the major graded areas for the trophy, so everyone plays a role to ensure Team Whiteman comes out victorious.

Whether you are Active Duty, Missouri Air National Guard, Reserve, or Civilian, all base personnel are invited to the Total Force Rally at Mission's End, Tuesday, Feb. 20, at 8 a.m. This event will kick off the official evaluation, and will make a lasting impact on the evaluators that Whiteman has the motivation, support, pride, and professionalism to be worthy of recognition.

It's not all work on your part! Base personnel are also invited to our Food Expo on Feb. 21, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. There will be 17 vendors at the Ozark Inn Dining Facility offering FREE, generous samples of new food items.

Whiteman has not taken home the Hennessy Trophy since 2013, but with your help, energy, and excitement on Feb. 20, we are confident that we will once again earn the title of Best Food Service Program in the Air Force!
