Today’s Navy galleys are a part of the decades-long tradition of providing hearty meals for Sailors at sea and on shore. Primarily serving meals to single Sailors who live on base and do not receive full basic allowance for subsistence, Navy galleys provide essential food services to all uniformed military personnel at Navy installations worldwide.
Over the years, galleys have evolved to reflect popular tastes in ethnic foods, such as Asian, Mexican and Italian cuisine. Many galleys also add a touch of local flavor, while emphasizing healthy meal choices.
Ashore galleys are vital to readiness, serving more than 28 million meals annually. CNIC provides the resources required to ensure nutritious meals are offered in excellent facilities staffed with highly-trained Navy and civilian personnel. Resources are focused on training commands, fleet concentration areas, overseas and remote/isolated locations, which provide the greatest customer outreach opportunities.
