The Hy-Vee stores across the midwest plan to salute all veterans and active-duty military members this Wednesday, with their annual Veterans Day breakfast.

It's their way of recognizing and thanking military members for their service by providing a free meal.

The 240 Hy-Vee stores throughout the midwest plan to serve more than 80,000 veterans, military members and their guests throughout their eight-state region.

Some of the stores have even planned programs, displays, entertainment or other activities to go along with the breakfast.

It's all part of the Hy-Vee Homefront initiative, which is comprised of several company efforts, including the “Hy-Vee Round Up for the Homefront” program, Honor Flights and veterans and military member employee recruitment.

Hy-Vee customers can also help veterans and military members now through November 15, 2015 by rounding up their purchases to the next dollar, or a desired dollar amount at the checkout stand.

The Hy-Vee stores will then match all customer donations up to $100,000.

All the proceeds collected from Hy-Vee’s Round Up program will go towards benefiting three organizations that support veterans and their families.

You'll need to check your local Hy-Vee stores for breakfast hours and event details.
