Flight line welcomes revamped food court Cpl. Melissa Eschenbrenner

Subway gave away 500 free submarine sandwiches to celebrate the re-opening of the flight line food court aboard Marine Corps Air Station Miramar, Calif., March 8. Subway was one of three new food choices added to the food court.

MARINE CORPS AIR STATION MIRAMAR, Calif. -- Marine Corps Community Services and station Marines held a ribbon-cutting ceremony to celebrate the re-opening of the flight line food court aboard Marine Corps Air Station Miramar, Calif., March 8.

The newly renovated food court is now enhanced with a Subway, Winn Sushi and Ramone’s Mexican Barbecue. The food vending stands were also renovated with better equipment.

“The Marines used to enjoy the old food court,” said Col. John P. Farnam, the commanding officer of MCAS Miramar. “But now, with some new spots to eat, the food court is full and Marines can have a good lunch and get back to doing what they do best.”

The food court, now renovated with new paint, ceilings and lighting, creates a better atmosphere, explained Mary Joe Heath, the director of food and hospitality with MCCS at MCAS Miramar.

The new vendors offered free sushi, tacos and subs to celebrate the opening and showed Marines what they have to offer. Door prizes and a 42-inch television were raffled off during the event courtesy of MCCS.

The food court will return to its usual hours of operation. Marines can now enjoy a good lunch at a location close to work and be back in time to complete the mission at hand.
