Victuals for U. S. Army Cost $5,000,000 a Month

The Chicago Quartermaster Depot is the chief pantry of the United States Army, shopping for a family of approximately 1,500,000 and spending more than $5,000,000 a month for victuals. The Depot buys 2,000,000 pounds of fresh, frozen beef every week and places an order for 20,000,000 pounds of flour four times each year. It was in the market (Oct.. 1941) for 35,368,000 cans of tomatoes, 25,000,000 cans of corn, 22.131.600 cans of peas and 5.444.400 cans of spinach

Supplies piled up at this depot are delivered to military posts throughout the country. Its leading platforms, all under one roof, can accommodate 72 freight cars a day and 50 motor trucks at one time. The principal duties of the Quartermaster Corps

are to feed, clothe, house and transport the Army. In Chicago and in eight other original depots in each Army Corps the Q. M. C. handles all supplies common to two or more branches of the service. Although its chief task is the procurement of food, the Chicago depot also buys all the coal and coke used by the Army, most of the beds and cots and about 2.100 other items ranging from mothballs to snowshoes.

The Chicago depot keeps fires going under three large roasters capable of turning out 1.000 pounds of coffee every 20 minutes. The depot buys its coffee green and sees to it that 1,000,000 pounds are on hand at all times, so that the beans can be roasted just before shipment.
