Fueled to Fight, MCCS to Offer More Healthy Food Options


Release Date: 1/20/2007

MCB QUANTICO, VA - Beginning Jan. 8, 2007, MCCS clubs and snack bars at participating installations will offer a healthy eating program called "Fueled to Fight." This program was developed in response to the desires of MCCS customers, both military and civilian, for more fresh and nutritious offerings at MCCS food activities. 

Participating MCCS clubs and snack bars will offer an enhanced salad bar (where offered) and at least one healthy entr¿e (buffet or ala cart) and one side dish. These healthy menu items comply with standards suggested in the Dietary Guidelines for Americans 2005 and in many instances will be existing regional or ethnic favorite's that have been modified to conform to the guidelines. 

MCCS clubs and snack bar patrons will be able to identify the operations taking part in the " Fueled to Fight"  program by the logos displayed at location entrances.  Menu items that meet the " Fueled To Fight"  guidelines will also be identified. Table tents, placemats, flyers and posters will be used to promote the program, and help educate customers on how to make healthy choices.

The installations that have chosen to implement the " Fueled To Fight"  program are MCB Camp Lejeune, MCB Camp Pendleton, MCAS Iwakuni, MCAS New River, MCB Quantico, MCAS Miramar, MCAS Cherry Point and MCAGCC Twentynine Palms.

For further information on the program contact your participating MCCS club or snack bar manager.
