Mission

The Military Ration Museum was founded in 2015 with the goal of collecting, preserving, and exhibiting examples of military food items and related technology. The development and advancement of technologies for use by the military has changed the food production industry worldwide and still influences the way food is preserved and stored today. We seek to provide a home for the artifacts and information that will help tell the story of military eating for years to come.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

We want to provide the public with the opportunity to visit our collections, learn from our staff, and share in the history of the development of military food. In doing so we'll be preserving a piece of our history.

We will be building a board of directors with key skillsets and experience, fundraising, working with volunteers, seeking artifact donations, and applying known preservation techniques and technology.

Our staff is dedicated to providing the time and effort necessary to continue moving forward with our goals at an acceptable, but still ambitious pace.

We have successfully obtained a sizable series of collections relevant to our mission as a museum dedicated to the preservation of military food artifacts and information. These items are on loan from several sources, with the intention of permanent purchase when it becomes financially feasible for the museum to own these collections directly.

From early July, through late December 2015, The Military Ration Museum produced an exhibit of rations and related errata that was on display to the public at the Montana State University Library. The Director of Special Collections managed and secured the exhibit for the nearly sixth months it was on display.

We have not yet completed our board of directors, and have yet to begin our primary fundraising drive for our base needs.
