“The drive behind the recent DFAC changes stems right from the top. Thomas explained that Maj. Gen. Randy A. George, commanding general, 4th Inf. Div. and Fort Carson, enjoyed his experience during a visit to the Evans Army Community Hospital Dining Facility late last year. He then issued guidance to 4th Inf. Div. food program leaders to begin emulating, and even improving, on the Evans DFAC model, to include healthier food options.
According to Brigitte Grimes, 4th Inf. Div. dietitian, Fort Carson is implementing performance-fueling food options and nutrition education postwide in an effort to prompt better food and beverage selections with the aim of optimizing performance, readiness and health.”
