Returned servicemen and women dine free on ANZAC Day

Wellington, NZ

For Immediate Release - April 2014

Wellington restaurants invite returned servicemen and women to eat for free on ANZAC Day.

ANZAC Day celebrates and honours those who have served New Zealand and Australia in military operations. This ANZAC Day Wellington restaurants Monsoon Poon, Boulcott Street Bistro and Osteria del Toro are honouring returned servicemen and women who have served abroad by inviting them to enjoy a complimentary meal.

“There are many New Zealanders who have served abroad and deserve our recognition, and we’d like to thank them, ” Monsoon Poon owner and President of Restaurant Association of New Zealand, Mike Egan says.

After seeing a similar concept in the United states, and talking to Monsoon Poon customers Mr Egan brought the tribute to New Zealand in 2012.

“Many restaurants throughout the United States honour their service men and women in a similar style with ‘Veterans Dine for Free’. It has proven to be a well respected event, with a great response,” said Mr Egan.

“A few of our guests [at Monsoon Poon] were once stationed at the NZ Army base in Singapore and love South East Asian food, so I thought we’d invite them to dine as an acknowledgement of their service.”

This will be the third ANZAC day this group of restaurants have made the offer to New Zealand servicemen and women who have served overseas on combat, combat-like or peace keeping, making or enforcement operations

“Over the past two years, we’ve had a number of returned servicemen and women enjoy the offer and hope as the idea catches on, we will see more this year,” says Mr Egan.

Monsoon Poon and Osteria del Toro are open for 5pm dinner this ANZAC Day, Friday 25th April.
(Offer also available at Monsoon Poon, Auckland)
Boulcott Street Bistro is open from 5pm

Share this with every person you know who has served, and be sure to thank them.
