This stone cafeteria building was constructed in 1948-1949 to serve the students of the Theodore Roosevelt School. It is the last building constructed here that is part of the Fort Apache Historic District. Before the construction of this building, the westernmost enlisted men's barracks (no longer standing) served as the kitchen and dining room for the school.

Throughout most of the boarding school era, academic education was secondary to vocational and domestic training. Children provided much of the labor necessary for the daily operation of the school, with chores ranging from laundering clothing and cleaning the dormitories to working in the school gardens and preparing and serving food in the cafeteria.
