CAMP FOSTER – The Army & Air Force Exchange Service is celebrating the grand opening of Bun-D, a better-for-you restaurant, in the Camp Foster food court.

“Bun-D gives our military community another healthy-dining option,” said Exchange Pacific Region Food Safety Officer Chief Warrant Officer 4 Leanna Lester, who spoke at the May 16 ribbon-cutting ceremony. “The Exchange is committed to providing our community with choices and options to live a healthier lifestyle.”

Bun-D focuses on natural, unprocessed ingredients for its menu, which includes daily-made sauces, fresh salads, wraps and rice bowls with chicken or beef.

“I am pleased my sergeant major and I could come and support the Exchange during Bun-D’s grand opening,” said Marine Corps Installation Pacific-Camp Foster Commander Col. Jeffrey L. Hammond. “This healthy new dining option shows how the Exchange continues to support our Marines on Okinawa with goods and services that help build their fitness and resolve.”

The Exchange continues to promote better-for-you choices as part of its BE FIT program, which highlights health-conscious dining, wellness services and an assortment of fitness gear.

The Exchange currently has five Bun-D restaurants in the Pacific Region with the latest grand opening held on Kadena Air Base in November 2021. There are currently 32 Bun-D restaurants at Exchange locations throughout the world including Germany, the U.K., Guam and Korea with four more scheduled to open in 2022.

Bun-D is located in the Camp Foster food court, Building 1001. Hours of operation are 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. daily.
