DALLAS – Wednesdays are now something to look forward to as Army & Air Force Exchange Service restaurants are offering $2 off any salad priced $4 or more on what is becoming known as “Salad Wednesdays.”  

Now, when picking up a salad at any Exchange direct operated restaurant on Wednesdays, guests can save money and eat nutritionally at the same time.

“Not only can you eat healthy, but you’ll get more bang for your buck,” said the Exchange’s Senior Enlisted Advisor Chief Master Sgt. Tony Pearson. “Beyond the $2 savings on Wednesday salad orders, guests save an additional 10% when paying with a MILITARY STAR® card or Exchange gift card.”  

“Salad Wednesdays” are part of the Exchange’s Operation BEFIT initiative to promote health and wellness through fitness and diet.

Exchange restaurants are open to anyone on the installation – whether military, civil service, contractor or visitor – per Army Regulation 215-8 and Air Force Instruction 34-211 (I).  “Salad Wednesdays” occur every Wednesday at all participating Exchange restaurants.
