MEMBERS of the Armed Forces will be able to get a free hot breakfast at three Tesco cafés in Somerset, including Weston, to mark the Armed Forces Day celebration this weekend.

As a thank-you for their service, on Sunday 30 June all serving Armed Forces personnel, regulars, and reservists can present their MOD90 identification card at the Tesco cafés in Taunton’s Castle Street, Weston-super-Mare’s Station Road, and Yeovil’s Queensway to get The Breakfast, The Veggie Breakfast, The Vegan Breakfast, Sausage Bap, Veggie Bap, or the Bacon Bap for free.

It’s the third year of offering the free breakfast and this year it has been extended to veterans with a valid Veteran’s ID card, limited to one free breakfast per cardholder.

Ashwin Prasad, Group Chief Product Officer at Tesco and Exec Sponsor of the Armed Forces Network, said: “As the largest private employer of Armed Forces veterans in the UK, we feel a close affinity with Armed Forces personnel.

“Everyone loves a free breakfast and it’s a nice way of thanking them for their service.”

Rhys Little, chair of the Armed Forces Network at Tesco, said: “We take great pride in our connection with the Armed Forces.

“We’ve received the Gold Award from the Defence Employer Recognition Scheme twice now – in 2016 and 2020 – and we were also the first retailer to sign the Armed Forces Covenant in 2014.”
