Chipotle restaurants are currently offering free burritos to healthcare workers in appreciation for their hard work and dedication during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The popular Colorado-born restaurant has just announced a plan to give a staggering 250,000 burritos free of charge to people working in the healthcare industry as a token of appreciation for their tireless and no doubt hard work helping those afflicted with the coronavirus during the pandemic.

If you happen to be a healthcare worker, you can redeem your free burrito online, beginning today, Thursday, April 29th here, and receive your free burrito while supplies last.

Chris Brandt, the chief marketing officer of Chipotle had this to say about the promotion in a recent press release:

Given the events of the past year, we are once again bringing our fans together to show appreciation for the heroic efforts of the health care community.

Chipotle has also implemented what they are calling a "virtual thank you wall," where customers are welcome and encouraged to write notes expressing gratitude to healthcare workers that have so selflessly devoted their time, energy, and care during the difficult times we've faced recently.

The popular restaurant chain has also gone a step further and implemented a new gift card program that will benefit the American Nurses Foundation by donating 10% of sales of the cards to the aforementioned foundation up to $250,000.

Chipotle restaurants were founded here in Colorado in 1993 with 16 locations and over the years have rapidly grown to have thousands of locations nationwide.
