Exchange Shoppers Can Keep Some Cash and Eat Healthy on Salad Wednesdays

DALLAS – Soldiers, Airmen and families can enjoy their greens and save some greenbacks every Salad Wednesday at Army & Air Force Exchange Service restaurants.

On Wednesdays, diners can take $2 off any salad priced $4 or more at participating Exchange direct-operated restaurants.

“The Exchange is all-in to promote a BE FIT lifestyle focused on the health and well-being of Airmen, Soldiers, retirees, military families and Veterans,” said Air Force Chief Master Sgt. Luis Reyes, the Exchange’s senior enlisted advisor. “Saving money on smarter food choices can help military shoppers make their healthy lifestyle a reality.”

The Exchange is a partner in the Healthy Army Communities and Air Force Smart Fueling initiatives under the Office of the Secretary of Defense, Operation Live Well. All Exchange restaurants offer better-for-you menu choices to support Warfighters’ readiness and resiliency.

MILITARY STAR cardholders receive even greater savings on Salad Wednesdays—diners who pay with MILITARY STAR get an additional 10% discount.

Exchange restaurants are open to anyone – whether military, civil service, contractor or visitor – per Army Regulation 215-8 and Air Force Instruction 34-211 (I).
