Well-fed feds

Here's an awesome assignment: Our colleagues from The Washington Post Food Section recently reviewed seven government owned and operated cafeterias to assess availability of healthful options, variety and, of course, the taste.

New General Services Administration cafeteria contracts that encourage the use of healthy, organic and locally-grown foods prompted the project. GSA handles food service contracts at about 350 cafeterias nationwide, while the Pentagon and the Department of Veterans Affairs are responsible for their own food service.

Read The Post's food reviews of the following cafeterias:

Supreme Court Cafeteria

U.S. Department of Agriculture South Cafe

The Cafe at State

U.S. Patent and Trademark Office Roundhouse Cafe

Longworth House Office Building Cafe

Pentagon Dining Room

National Institutes of Health Clinical Centers Cafeteria
