AUXCHEF Program gets a new name

AUXCHEF now AUXFS

What is the AUXFS Program?
The AUXSF (Auxiliary Food Service Specialist) Program is a National Auxiliary Program designed to provide trained
Auxiliarists to fill-in at Small Boat Stations or on cutters to relieve FSs (Food Service Specialist) . The program allows FSs to
attend training, take leave, etc. without the Station being short handed. The AUXFS can also
assist with VIP events, Change of Commands and other events such as picnics. AUXFS can be
available for a variety of time frames from one meal to several days. The AUXFS do not
shop for or supply food, they prepare the food the stations provide, and assist in serving and cleanup.
AUXFS  supply that home cooked touch during the holidays and at special events.

 
Who are the AUXFS'S?
The certified AUXFS complete 18-22 hours of basic food services training. The training based
on the FS3 Striker course, emphasizes safety and sanitation, working in a galley and basic food preparation.
The Food Services Directorate has approved the AUXFS Training Program. A certified and experienced
AUXFS is the instructor for the training, often assisted by a unit Food Service Specialist.
