Work on the Fort Peck Dam went on twenty-four hours a day and feeding the workers was achallenge. 12,000 sandwiches were made in the commissary every day. The amount of beef and pork in the the meat lockers looked like a slaughterhouse; that was just the storehouse to feed the workers. Everything was made from scratch, so raw products like sugar and flour were in high demand. Goods came in from all over Montana; no single company could provide the scale necessary to feed the entire workforce.
