Exchange shoppers save with Salad Wednesdays

DALLAS — Army & Air Force Exchange Service shoppers can put green on their plates while keeping some green in their wallets with Salad Wednesdays at their Exchange food court.

Every Wednesday, diners can take $2 off any salad priced $4 or more at participating Exchange direct-operated restaurants. Salad Wednesday is part of the Exchange’s BE FIT initiative, designed to promote healthy lifestyles for Soldiers, Airmen, retirees and military families.

“Eating healthy is essential to not only force readiness and resiliency but the development of healthy, happy military children,” said Chief Master Sgt. Luis Reyes, the Exchange’s senior enlisted advisor. “The Exchange wants to help military families get the nutrition they need — without breaking the bank.”

In addition to Salad Wednesday savings, diners who use their MILITARY STAR card will receive the everyday additional 10 percent discount at Exchange restaurants.

Exchange restaurants are open to anyone – whether military, civil service, contractor or visitor – per Air Force Instruction 34-211 (I).
