Armed Forces & Veterans Breakfast Clubs facilitate the meeting of veterans and serving armed forces personnel in a relaxed, safe and social environment to share breakfast and banter, and to combat loneliness.

There are currently active clubs running in Brittany and the Aquitaine area, but the organisation is looking for volunteers to start new clubs in their local departments.

Global reach

It has more than 420 clubs spanning 14 countries, with approximately 150,000 members worldwide.
