Food Options

According to the UNITE Program policy, you can do an activity w/o having food, but you cannot have food w/o an activity. Although this is the policy, think outside the box. You can have your meal at a separate time during the day than during your activity. For example, On Wingman Day have a breakfast burrito feed in the morning, get your mandatory training or commanders calls out of the way, and then do your activity in the afternoon. Or, go rock wall climbing during the day, and afterward, everyone goes to a pizza parlor for a meal.

  • Purchase food from Commissary or other grocery store and make your own (BBQ, Picnic, etc.)
  • Purchase Pre-Made food from On or Off Base Company
  • Commissary Deli
  • Alder House
