McDonald’s is offering free ‘Thank You Meals’ to health care workers and first responders as a token of appreciation for their selfless service during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The offer will be valid between April 22 and May 5.

The meals will be available to health care workers, police officers, firefighters and paramedics.

The company says they’ll be available at no charge via drive-thru or carryout at participating restaurants nationwide.

The Thank You Meal will be available during breakfast, lunch or dinner and will feature a choice of sandwiches, drinks and a side featuring small fries or a hash brown, along with a note of appreciation.

It will be served in McDonald’s iconic Happy Meal box.

The company says all healthcare workers have to do is show their work badge or be in uniform to receive the free offer.

“Emergency physicians and other health care workers on the frontlines are spending hours a day on their feet, often missing meals in their efforts to care for their patients,” said Dr. William Jaquis, President of The American College of Emergency Physicians, in the release. “McDonald’s Thank You Meal is a much-appreciated gesture for those risking their lives each day to take a break with a hot meal amidst the turbulence.”
