Airmen ‘eat up’ at feast

Members of the base chapel and volunteers host a free flightline feast on the first Thursday of every month.

A row of entrees and warm sides, including Frito-pie, lines the serving table at flightline feast. Enough food was prepared for an expected turnout of 300 people.

A choice of desserts rounds out the meal.

Pulled pork and chicken are the main course of the meal. The food selection is based on a theme for each month. January’s theme is Super Bowl playoffs.

Members of the 56th Fighter Wing Chapel and volunteers serve food to hungry Airmen during the January flightline feast Jan. 7 at Luke Air Force Base.
