To celebrate Armed Forces Day on Sunday, June 26, Tesco is giving away almost 200,000 free hot breakfasts across its cafes in the UK to members of the Armed Forces. In a bid to show support for the men and women who make up the Armed Forces community, the supermarket giant will be serving all Armed Forces personnel – around 159,000 regulars and 32,000 reservists – a free full meal.

They can pick from a cooked breakfast, vegan cooked breakfast, sausage bap or bacon bap. Members can show their MOD90 identification card at any of Tesco’s 295 cafes across the country to redeem their free breakfast, which is limited to one free breakfast per cardholder, Hull Live reports.

Chair of the Armed Forces Network at Tesco, Rhys Little, 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 (in 2016 and 2020), 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.”

Up and down the country, hundreds of local events will be taking place over the weekend to mark the event – but it’s the Yorkshire town of Scarborough that’s at the heart of the celebrations. It promises to be a spectacular event, with displays by the Red Arrows and the RAF Falcons Parachute Display Team and a series of thrilling flybys.

Tesco will be sponsoring the event and stores will be holding a nationwide collection for Help for Heroes and store colleagues in Yorkshire will be taking part in a static bike ride to raise extra funds for the charity.
