FORT LEE, Va. (June 9, 2016) - The Defense Commissary Agency will host the military resale partnership event, Your Healthy Lifestyle Festival, July 1-31 at commissaries worldwide.

This annual event will feature discounted prices on produce at commissary farmers markets, savings on workout equipment and apparel at exchanges, health screenings at local clinics, and fitness events hosted by the post morale, welfare and recreation activities.

With the theme "Live Healthy and Save Big!," the festival combines savings while supporting the military community's health and wellness goals, said DeCA Sales Director Tracie Russ.

"We heartily support DOD's many initiatives to improve the health and wellness of service members and their families. Supporting this fest is a great way to continue that tradition," Russ said. "Together, the military resale community helps reinforce the installation as the No. 1 destination for partnership events.

The festival combines commissary farmers markets, exchange sidewalk sales, MWR fitness events, demos, music, free nutritious food samples, prize giveaways, discount coupon offers, health and wellness information and children's programs. "Our patrons benefit most through the collaborative efforts of commissaries, exchanges, MWR services and our industry partners," Russ said.

For DeCA, the Lifestyle Festival also gives more visibility to the commissaries' worldwide farmers market program, an event that has offered plenty of tasty fruits and vegetables for the past three years, Russ said.

"Our patrons are in for a treat when it comes to the quality produce offered at our farmers markets," Russ said. "Thanks to the creativity of our store personnel and industry partners who inject plenty of imagination and excitement into our farmers markets, combined with the exchange sales and the MWR fitness events, this festival will be a must-attend for our military customers."
