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

The local Hy-Vee will serve a buffet-style breakfast from 6 to 11 a.m. Wednesday. The meal will include scrambled eggs, bacon, sausage, cheesy hash browns, biscuits and gravy, fruit, coffee cake and coffee.

The Veterans Day breakfasts are 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.

Through Sunday Hy-Vee customers can help support veterans by rounding up their purchases to the next dollar ā€” or a desired dollar amount ā€” at checkout. Hy-Vee will match customer donations up to the amount of $100,000. All proceeds from Hy-Veeā€™s Round Up program go to benefiting three organizations that support veterans and their families.
