JBA celebrates new FOODA lunch services at ANG Readiness Center

By Army & Air Force Exchange Service Public Affairs

The Army & Air Force Exchange Service is launching a pop-up dining program—complete with better-for-you choices—at the Air National Guard Readiness Center (ANGRC).

FOODA, which opens July 29, brings local brand-name and mom-and-pop restaurants to the ANGRC for lunch daily. For the first week, the Andrews location will offer new cuisine each day from the following restaurants:

  • Monday: The Halal Guys
  • Tuesday: Spice Route
  • Wednesday: Aloha Poke
  • Thursday: PinkE’s Eats
  • Friday: Capital Chicken and Waffles

Maj. Gen. Steven Nordhaus, ANGRC commander, joined Lani Stewart, Exchange service businesses manager, and Mark Barry, FOODA regional vice president, in celebrating the grand opening of the program July 29. The ceremony featured free breakfast followed by the first lunch service, both supplied by The Halal Guys.

“The Exchange is finding new ways to deliver better-for-you choices in support of a BE FIT lifestyle from restaurants Warfighters love,” said Thea Sarver, Andrews Exchange General Manager. “The variety and convenience offered by FOODA makes teaming with them a no-brainer.”

FOODA is located in the ANGRC building at 3501 Fetchet Ave, Joint Base Andrews, and will be open Monday through Friday from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Diners can call the Andrews Exchange office at 301-568-2222 for more information.

The FOODA location at Joint Base Andrews is the first of two opening at D.C.-area installations—a location at the Joint Base Anacostia-Bolling Exchange mall is scheduled to open Aug. 5.

FOODA, like all Exchange restaurants, will offer better-for-you choices as part of the Exchange’s goal to encourage a BE FIT lifestyle.
