National Beef Plant Feed

VVS Feeds 7,000 at National Beef

What does it take to feed 7,000 hungry National Beef employees and their families? Careful planning and hard work! VVS Canteen site manager, David Castillo and assistant manager, Deanna Martinez began setting up the Western State Bank Expo Center in Dodge City, Kansas two days in advance and figuring out the best layout to accommodate the large number of attendees. Another challenge to overcome was the distance between the Expo center and the groups’ kitchen facility. Careful planning and organization was used to figure out the cooking schedules and the multiple deliveries needed to keep food hot and in supply. The event was a success! Great job to everyone involved!
