VANDENBERG AIR FORCE BASE, Calif. -- More than 50 Team V members were in attendance Nov. 8 for the official grand re-opening of Breakers Base Restaurant here.

Breakers Base Restaurant, formally known as Breakers Dining Facility, has been closed for more than seven months undergoing various upgrades and renovations under the second stage of Food Transformation Initiative.

According to the official AF Services website, FTI is an AF program designed to provide Airmen with improved food quality, variety and availability, while maintaining home station and warfighting feeding capabilities.

"What a great day for Vandenberg Air Force Base Airmen and their families," said Col. Keith Balts, 30th Space Wing commander. "Today is the next step in the evolution of Food Transformation. When I first came in [to the Air Force] Airmen ate at chow halls, then they became dining facilities and now, as we improve the way our base community gathers to dine, we have a base restaurant that is open to everybody, every day. I'm proud to be a part of that today."

The renovated campus-style dining facility is open from 6 a.m. to 6:30 p.m., Monday through Friday and 6:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m., Saturday, Sunday and holidays to all Team Vandenberg members.

The FTI pilot locations include Elmendorf AFB, Alaska, Fairchild AFB, Wash., Little Rock AFB, Ark., MacDill AFB, Fla., Patrick AFB, Fla., Vandenberg, and Travis AFB, Calif.
