Marine Corps food service teams share a common mission, the commitment to perform to the highest standards whether in the field or in garrison when preparing the meals that support the physical performance and mental wellbeing of fellow Marines.
That commitment to supporting the military mission and morale is recognized annually when the Marine Corps completes evaluations for the William Pendleton Thompson Hill Memorial awards for food service excellence.
Winners enjoy the distinction of being considered the best performers among all the Marine Corps food service teams that competed for the Hill award.
