Minnesota National Guard Unit Request Procedures
Units coordinate with their battalion S4 Office to ensure support cannot be provided from another MSC or FSC Culinary Section prior to requesting support. Units will submit requests to the CDF POC NLT 30 days prior to training dates. The CDF Request Form identifies the requirement for subsistence from the CDF including the Unit, POC's name and phone numbers and will be returned if missing required information. The unit POC contacts the CDF COR 72 hours in advance of the first meal to finalize total SIK to be supported. Request for extended meal times will be requested with a memorandum explaining your request. Organizations that fail to submit the CDF Request Form prior to the required 30 day suspense may result in the CDF being unable to fulfill the request. Alternate subsistence support will be operational rations: TOTMs or MREs.
