Chipotle are delivering free burritos (and your messages) to healthcare workers
The chain is giving away 100,000 burritos to healthcare heroes
Frontline staff are working tirelessly to keep people well while coronavirus rages across the US. And now Chipotle has joined the list of restaurants who are doing the right thing by hooking healthcare workers up with free food.
The chain is asking healthcare providers to register for a chance to score 25 free burritos during World Health Worker Week, which kicks off today and runs until 7 April. Chipotle will give away up to 100,000 burritos to healthcare facilities between April 6 and April 10.
Registration is open now through April 2 (which, as it happens, is National Burrito Day).
"We want to express our extreme gratitude by fueling the frontline workers at healthcare facilities across the country with real food," said Chris Brandt, Chief Marketing Officer. "It is our goal to bring joy and provide a little something extra for both the medical staff and our everyday guests."
To apply, providers should submit their details and personal information, along with delivery dates and times, and the number of burritos needs. It’s first come, first serve - so get applying!
The Burritos for Heroes campaign is also an opportunity for you to express your thanks to professionals working on the frontline. In an Instagram post, Chipotle wrote: “Thank your healthcare heroes. Drop a comment below for the nurses, doctors, admins, cleaning support, x-ray techs, and everyone in between. We’ll deliver your messages along with burritos next week.”
