Thanks to the dedicated men and women in these units, Soldiers deployed world-wide and on U.S. Army installations around the world can receive a brief respite from the rigors of training and combat.

Gone are the days of the typical Army cook portrayed in movies on the silver screen. These professionally trained and dedicated Soldiers bring quality and exceptional services to our fighting men and women.


The Connelly program is named in honor of Philip A. Connelly, past president of the International Food Service Executives Association (IFSEA), highly regarded as the driving force behind obtaining IFSEA sponsorship for the Department of the Army’s recognition of excellence in Army food service.


The program is co-sponsored by the Department of the Army and IFSEA. IFSEA representatives participate in the
evaluation of finalists in five dining facility categories - Small Garrison, Large Garrison, and field kitchens in the Active Army, U.S. Army Reserve and Army National Guard.


U.S. Army Center of Excellence and Subsistence (ACES) and IFSEA evaluators traveled around the world during the past three months to obtain first-hand knowledge of how Army food service personnel perform their jobs.


All the finalists were evaluated in a number of areas including food preparation, taste, nutrition, service and sanitation.


For this year’s competition, a total of 28 finalists were selected for evaluation.
