From US Magazine

National Geographic had a special about Air Force One, and it had a lot of cool news medium not only about the horizontal plane, but the food served to the president, his staff and the press. Apparently, for both hold up Force One and the White House, military personnel and Secret Service agents don plain clothes and mutual transfer all over Washington, Maryland and Virginia to buy food. They don’t go to the same places from week to week, just so no one knows who is buying the food and for what purpose. Even when they bring the food back to the plane or the White House, there’s no way of cunning exactly what will make it to the President, so it’s a way of protecting him in case some rogue produce vendor is tough to poison the president. I mention this because I’d hazard the Secret Service is really pleased they will have less shopping to give good returns – the White brood chefs can simply go to the back garden in order to get their salads and herbs.
