Kadena AFB – Service members, civilians and military families wanting to eat right and save money can turn to restaurants at the Kadena Exchange for “Salad Wednesday.”

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

“The ‘Salad Wednesday’ discount helps military diners put some green on their plate—and keep some green in their wallet,” said Kadena Exchange Food Court manager, Randy Cole. “The Exchange works to ensure Service members and families have access to meals that taste good and are good for them, too.”

In addition to “Salad Wednesday” savings, diners who use their MILITARY STAR card will receive an additional 10 percent discount at all participating Exchange restaurants.

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).  

The Army & Air Force Exchange Service goes where Soldiers, Airmen and their families go to improve the quality of their lives through goods and services provided. Exchange earnings provide dividends to support military morale, welfare and recreation programs. The Exchange is part of the Department of Defense and is directed by a Board of Directors, responsible to the Secretaries of the Army and Air Force through the Chiefs of Staff.  To find out more about the Exchange history and mission or to view recent press releases please visit our Web site at http://www.aafes.com/about-exchange/public-affairs/press-releases.htm or follow us on Twitter at https://twitter.com/ExchangePAO.
