Members of the Armed Forces will be offered free hot breakfast at Tesco cafés in Swindon to mark Armed Forces Day this Sunday.

As a thank-you for their service, on 26 June all serving Armed Forces personnel, both regulars and reservists, are invited to present their MOD90 identification card at any Tesco café.

They will receive a free full cooked breakfast, vegan cooked breakfast, sausage bap or bacon bap – limited to one free breakfast per cardholder.  

Ashwin Prasad, Chief Product Officer at Tesco and Director Sponsor of the Armed Forces Network, said: “We’re proud to be able to support National Armed Forces Day, which will celebrate the tremendous contribution that the armed forces make to our country.

“It’s an exciting opportunity for store colleagues to celebrate. Everyone loves a free breakfast and we thought it was a gesture that showed how much we value members of the Armed Forces.”

Tesco stores will also be holding collections for Help for Heroes.

Rhys Little, Chair of the Armed Forces Network at Tesco, said: “We've got a long history of getting behind those who have been in the forces.

“We've received the Gold award from the Defence Employer Recognition Scheme twice now, and we were also the first retailer to sign the Armed Forces Covenant in 2014. We also do our best to give anyone leaving the army, navy or RAF a chance to forge a new career.”
