Appetite for aid

Snack attacks resulted in a win for welfare last financial year with AAFCANS contributing $545,185.59 to Army and Air Force welfare, through its automated retail vending program The top three recipients were Lavarack Barracks with an impressive $107,444.90, Singleton Lone Pine Barracks on $54,846.77 and Albury-Wodonga with $45,530.82. Another impressive performer was Puckapunyal at $44,735.60 and Gallipoli Barracks with $41,236.52 in disbursement returns.

In total, 30 Defence welfare funds benefited from the profits generated by 290 AAFCANSbranded vending machines, spread across 31 ADF bases. AAFCANS vending machines earn big rewards for their host bases and provide members with convenient 24/7 access to amenities.

AAFCANS works with the Defence base leadership and provider to tailor the product offering to suit the locality of the machine. A more healthier product range has been included for selection with protein snacks, healthy treats, healthy drinks, health, beauty and convenience products, and fresh bean barista-style coffee.

Acting CEO for AAFCANS Tim Manic said social clubs and RTFs around the country had also benefited by leveraging the AAFCANS supply chain.

“We have been providing ADF social clubs with access to our special pricing,” Mr Manic said.

“The club representatives highly value this relationship and in particular, the convenient on-base deliveries via AAFCANS canteens.

“Support offered to RTFs has included consumables, grocery and all types of beverage products.”

AAFCANS is a not-for-profit organisation that exists solely for the welfare of Defence members and has done so since 1915. Profits are channelled into upgrading canteen facilities, broadening amenities for members and keeping services and prices competitive.

The AAFCANS mission is to contribute to Defence capability by enhancing personnel morale and wellbeing.
