Chipotle Mexican Grill is giving away 100,000 burritos to healthcare professionals on the frontlines fighting the coronavirus pandemic.

The fast food chain Chipotle has asked groups of healthcare workers to submit their applications for the free burritos by Thursday, April 2, which is National Burrito Day.

The free burrito offer is valid for a free, 25-count preconfigured Burritos by the Box order with free delivery between April 6 and April 10 during World Health Worker Week.

Any healthcare team can be nominated to receive the free burritos through DoorDash at a time and day of their choosing, so long as they are a valid hospital or another medical facility within the U.S. within 15 miles of a Chipotle restaurant.

“We want to express our extreme gratitude by fueling the frontline workers at healthcare facilities across the country with real food,” said Chris Brant, Chipotle’s 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.”

Chipotle joins a growing list of fast food chains offering freebies for healthcare workers. Sweetgreen, &Pizza, and Krispy Kreme doughnuts have also announced free food deals for healthcare workers.
