Contributing to the wellbeing of our troops.
AAFCANS is proud to be a not-for-profit organisation and member of the Australian Defence Force family. Our core aim is to serve this community as best as we can. As such, any additional funds we make go back to Defence and our customers through disbursements, price cuts and facility improvements.
Profits from local vending machines are received by each base’s SADFO in the form of a cheque (usually on a quarterly basis). He/she disburses these funds in a way that best serves their local personnel.
In the Financial Year 2020-21 , AAFCANS contributed $693,683 to the Army and Air Force through its automated retail vending program.

In excess of 300 AAFCANS branded state-of-the-art vending machines are in operation across 36 ADF bases/Defence facilities, earning vending monies for welfare funds. Not only does AAFCANS vending program provide members with the latest popular convenience products it also helps to earn big dollars for the bases’ welfare funds. The vending machines offer out-of-hours convenience which is widely appreciated by the base communities that use them. The bases where the sales are generated benefit directly from the vending profits and activities. For FY 2020-21, AAFCANS vending program gave back $693,683 to Defence welfare.
AAFCANS is part of Defence and is a not-for-profit organisation that exists solely for the welfare of Defence Members and has done so since 1915. AAFCANS directly provides amenities and convenience products and services across 27 ADF bases. The money spent at AAFCANS outlets stays within the Defence family and any profits made are channelled into future investment, continuous innovation and improvement to facilities and services for soldiers, airmen & airwomen.
