“This is the first year Wings will be hosting a Veteran Appreciation Lunch across B.C., but the company hopes to make it an annual event,” said Jeff Perham, brand and marketing manager for the GoldWings group, the parent company for Wings.

“It’s the least we can do to show our appreciation and thank some of the most deserving individuals in our local communities.”

Veterans are encouraged to come for their complimentary lunch item with friends and family, however only veterans will be offered the meal at no price.

To receive a free lunch item, veterans and current military individuals can visit any B.C. Wings location on Nov. 10 and 11 between 11 a.m. and 2 p.m., and will be required to provide a valid Canadian Armed Forces Service ID or come in uniform.
