Sergeant Jonathan Gomez of the U.S. Army recently visited the program to participate in a taste testing exercise using Meal, Ready-to-Eat (MRE) packets.

MRE packets are self-containing, lightweight and easy-to-make food rations utilized by military personnel where other food facilities are not readily available.

The taste testing exercise showcased the limited food options soldiers have and also demonstrated the skillsets needed to be a food service specialist in the Army.
