Surf the Internet and ‘Discover Your Benefit’

Find convenience and the latest information at your fingertips at the Defense Commissary Agency’s new and improved website:

DeCA has retooled its Internet site to include fresh new graphics that change with each season and a new section that promotes health and wellness. The single biggest addition is its “Ask the DeCA Dietitian,” a nutrition forum hosted by Army Reserve Maj. Karen Fauber, a registered dietitian. Customers can exchange questions, comments and experiences on nutrition topics with the DeCA dietitian and other users.

The site also helps customers make healthy financial choices by listing what’s on sale in the “Savings Aisle” under the “shopping” tab. Customers can print a list of all items on sale at their local commissary, and find Internet coupons on the ‘Links’ page.

If saving money is especially appealing, check out DeCA’s comprehensive case lot sale page available during its sale event every May and September. This web page is particularly popular with authorized shoppers who live a long distance from a commissary, but are willing to make a special trip, where savings can run as high as 50 percent, compared to commercial prices.

Customers can purchase or donate commissary gift certificates through “Gift of Groceries”; select from more than 100 gift baskets through “Virtual Commissary”; and sign up for commissary news via e-mail through “Commissary Connection.”

Last, but certainly not least, you will find Kay’s Kitchen online. If you’re stumped about what to prepare for dinner, look for inspiration here, where you’ll find lots of quick, easy and nutritional recipes using both classic and diverse ingredients from apples to zucchini.

DeCA’s website is a great way for commissary shoppers to discover their benefit and stay connected to what’s happening in their commissary – wherever in the world they and their families are stationed. For more information, go to:
