USA Today reports:
McDonald’s is introducing free “Thank You Meals” for first responders and health care workers serving on the front lines of the coronavirus pandemic, the fast-food giant announced Tuesday.
Starting Wednesday and through May 5, health care workers, police officers, firefighters and paramedics can get a free meal at participating restaurants nationwide available at the drive thru or for carry out.
The meals are available for breakfast, lunch and dinner and will be served in a Happy Meal box, “in the hopes of bringing a smile along with delicious food,” the company said in a news release. Officials said they expect to give away millions of free meals.
Below is their first tweet in over a month.
🚨 Friends. Family. Community. WE NEED YOU! ❤ Please help us help our frontline workers. We want to give them a FREE thank you meal. If you know anyone who could use one, please like, tag in comment or retweet to let them know. We’d truly be proud to take their order. pic.twitter.com/5UzDKE4Z1w
