DynCorp International (DI) team members working overseas are doing their part to help members of the military serving in Afghanistan celebrate Thanksgiving by cooking up nearly 20,000 traditional Thanksgiving Day meals for the holiday on November 28.

"Although DynCorp International Food Service serves more than 41.5 million meals per year, the Thanksgiving meal is where DI personnel truly take the opportunity to display their talents, offering our warfighters a bit of home away from home," said Robert F. Jennings IV, DynCorp International Food Services manager.

DI's food service teams working at 13 active forward operating bases in Afghanistan are planning this year to serve:

  • More than 68 tons (137,630 lbs) of turkey with 2,457 lbs of stuffing and 1,250 lbs of cranberry sauce
  • Two tons (4,950 lbs) of boneless ham
  • Two tons of shrimp
  • 749 gallons of mashed potatoes
  • More than 6,000 assorted fruit pies
  • Nearly 264 gallons of non-alcoholic eggnog and 591 gallons of sparkling grape juice

Goods are being shipped from DI's Distribution Center in Afghanistan to the outlying bases where it will be served in DI-managed dining facilities. Food Service managers have also been preparing Thanksgiving decorations for the U.S. military and civilian personnel to enjoy while dining.

As part of the LOGCAP IV program in Afghanistan, 1,200 DI team members work on the Food Service team operating 13 full-service dining facilities. DI provides support to the U.S. and Coalition troops in Afghanistan under the LOGCAP IV contract, including operations and maintenance support, facilities management, electrical power, water, sewage and waste management, laundry operations, food services, and transportation motor pool operations, as well as construction services for other sites.
