Military Child Month

Commissaries are observing April, the Month of the Military Child, with giveaways and savings for the entire family.
At the Defense Commissary Agency, we do all we can to provide our military children and their families with significant savings on groceries and household items, said Tracie Russ, DeCAs sales director. With events such as ProCamps and our 5-2-1-0 nutritional message, we recognize the unique challenges our youth experience because of the demands of military life.
DeCAs industry partners  vendors, suppliers and brokers  are collaborating with commissaries in April to offer discounts beyond everyday savings. Overseas stores may have substitute events for certain promotional programs. Also, shoppers can find even more deals on DeCAs website, www.commissaries.com, along with the commissary sales flyer, which features discounted items and healthy recipe ideas.
Patrons can also access the DeCA website for the following features: 1) the Commissary Rewards Card, which allows patrons to redeem coupons electronically at the commissary checkout. Patrons can pick up a card at their local commissary and register it at https://commissaries.com/rewards/index.cfm, where they can log into their account to load coupons on the card before they shop; and 2) DeCAs new Nutritional Guide Program; go to www.commissaries.com/healthy-living/nutrition-guide.cfm to learn more about the color-coded shelf labels that point out items with key nutrient attributes such as low sodium, whole grain, no sugar added, low fat, good source of fiber and organic.
Customers are asked to check their local commissary for details on dates and times for the following promotions:
"Commissaries worldwide will use the Month of the Military Child to educate shoppers to encourage their children about healthier lifestyles. The 5-2-1-0 message remains the call to action: Eat five fruits and vegetables every day; limit recreational screen time to two hours or less daily; get one hour or more of physical activity every day and avoid all drinks with sugar. Your local commissary may have commissary tours highlighting the nutritional value of fresh fruits and vegetables along with recipes, food sampling and giveaways. Check with your local commissary to find out when your childs event takes place.
"Many camps, 30-day dash, three ways to win! Through April 15, almost 100 commissaries worldwide will have a chance to win a football ProCamp for their installation. Winning stateside installations will host a free, two-day football camp for military children, both boys and girls, in first through eighth grade. At these camps, participants will learn from and play with some of their favorite NFL players like Alejandro Villanueva (Pittsburgh Steelers), Andre Roberts (Atlanta Falcons), Jonathan Stewart (Carolina Panthers), Steve Smith, Sr. (formerly of the Baltimore Ravens), Graham Gano (Carolina Panthers), LeGarrette Blount (New England Patriots), among many others. Installation consideration to qualify for a camp is based on their commissary sales of select items such as Tide, Pampers, Bounty, Charmin, Head & Shoulders, Pantene, Crest and Gillette. Customers can vote for their installation at www.StartStrongPG.com or text their base name to 1-855-980-1999. Standard messaging and data rates apply. Not all carriers support this service.

"Kashi Plus Fresh Pears! Kashi is offering coupon flyers worldwide so can buy two Kashi products and save $2 on fresh pears. Also, recipes will be available and in-store demos will highlight the nutritional value of Kashi and pears.
"Overseas Service Corporation and their partners present the Fisher House Theme Event, a stateside-only sale to raise awareness and money for The Fisher House Organization. The Fisher House is a home away from home for families of patients receiving medical care at major military and Veterans Affairs medical centers. Look for special prices and coupons supported by a coupon flyer and mass displays in all stateside stores from participating manufacturers.
"The Clorox Company and Bushs Best are teaming up with Kimberly Clark to host the 10th annual Race for Savings NASCAR-themed in-store sales event from April 10-23 stateside only. Patrons at participating stores can enter to win a NASCAR Memorial Day Race Package in Charlotte, North Carolina. Two grand prize race packages will be given away nationally. Each prize package includes airfare for two, hotel, race tickets for the Nextel Cup race as well as a $300 VISA cash card for meals and incidentals. Check out special NASCAR/JTG Daugherty Racing displays in the commissaries for details on how to enter.
As we honor our military children, dont miss out on these opportunities to save even more, Russ said. For everyone in the family, the commissary is always worth the trip.

Customer Appreciation

Commissary patrons will be able to stock up on their favorite items at significant savings during the Defense Commissary Agencys spring Customer Appreciation Case Lot Sale event.(April 29 & 30, May 1&2)
Many of our military members and their families relish the opportunity to buy cases of items similar to what theyd see in commercial club stores, said Tracie Russ, DeCAs director of sales. On top of shopping in bulk, our patrons realize huge savings  thats a deal they cannot afford to miss.
Each stateside store hosts an individual two- or three-day case lot sale. The majority of sale dates occur in late April and throughout the month of May, while in some locations, like Fort Leavenworth, Kansas, sales begin as early as mid-April. Patrons are encouraged to check https://www.commissaries.com/case_lot_sale.cfm for case lot schedules. Commissaries in Alaska, Hawaii and Puerto Rico are also participating.
Commissaries in Europe and the Pacific, while not officially participating, may have substitute events such as sidewalk sales.
In addition to the case lot formats found in commercial club stores, commissary case lot events also offer additional mix and match packages of similar items in bulk-size cases. These include grocery items such as barbecue sauces; canned tomatoes, beans and vegetables; certain pasta meals; cold cereals; snacks; yogurt; water, tea and juices; pet food; and body washes, soaps and shampoos.
Customers have a variety of options to choose from. Sale items include products in the following categories:

Nutrition Guide Program

Nutrition Guide Program and Label

Nutrition Guide Program (NGP): "Dietitian Approved! We did the Work for You!"
The NGP consists of color-coded shelf labels that identify key nutritional attributes for
commissary grocery products. The purpose of the NGP is to assist commissary shoppers in their
identification and selection of nutritional grocery products found throughout the commissary.
The point-of-selection NGP shelf labels will be aligned on shelves with corresponding grocery
products that meet particular nutritional guidelines. NGP labeling is designed to assist shoppers
by helping them easily identify specific nutritional attributes of grocery products. The NGP
color-coded shelf labels assist shoppers in choosing healthy lifestyle food options by making it
convenient to identify grocery products with particular nutritional attributes: Low Sodium, Low
Fat, Whole Grain, No Sugar Added, Good Source of Fiber, and Organic.
The NGP is based on Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and United States Department of Agriculture
(USDA) standards which are widely recognized and trusted. All NGP labels for grocery products are
based on the food manufacturer's labeling, including the Nutrition Facts Panel and ingredients
list.
DeCA also worked in collaboration with DoD services branch dieticians to align the program as
closely as possible to DoDs Go for Green® nutritional program. Go for Green® has been deployed
throughout DoD installations and dining facilities. Products in the commissary's NGP that align
closely with the Go for Green® category (High Nutrition Quality/High Performance Food) has a
"Thumbs-Up" icon displayed on the NGP label.
The NGP shelf labels are designed to benefit commissary patrons by providing point-of-selection
nutritional information. The NGP shelf labels draw attention to more than 600 items on the
commissary's grocery sales floor that meets similar Go for Green® criteria for High Nutrition
Quality/High Performance Food. These items are identified by NGP labels with the "Thumbs- Up" icon.
