From 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. on November 11, any active, inactive or retired military veteran of any U.S. service branch is eligible to receive the free meal, available at any Martin’s Deli. To receive an Honor Meal, a veteran, either retired, discharged or in active service in U.S. (Federal) armed forces units or National Guard units will be asked to show his or her Military Identification Card at the checkout, and the meal will be free. No purchase is required, nor does a valid Martin’s Advantage Card need to be presented to take advantage of the offer. Holder of military ID Cards issued to dependents and spouses of active or retired service members are not eligible for this offer.Return to event list.
“We call this an Honor Meal, because it’s just that ― a way to honor those military personnel who serve so bravely, in the past and in the present. For the last two years, veterans by the thousands came to our stores, many with family and friends, to share part of that day with Martin’s employees. So many veterans thanked us, but the real thanks, I think, belongs to them ― for all the sacrifices required of them to protect our country and our freedoms,” stated Randy Holtzinger, Martin’s Vice President, Sales and Marketing.
This year’s Honor Meal will include: two pieces of Martin’s Deli Fried Chicken; a side of mashed potatoes; a side of cold salad; a roll; a hot or cold 16 oz. Deli beverage; a Dean’s pint-size Milk Chug; a serving of Edy’s or Prairie Farms ice cream; and a slice of Martin’s cake (cake while supplies last). Meals are available for eat-in only. No carry out packaging will be available due to the volume of meals expected to be served during the Honor Meal period. Stores that do not normally have eat-in Deli areas will set up special seating on Veterans Day to accommodate their Honor Meal guests.
