There are no words to express how thankful we should be for the work our first responders do every single day.

And when natural disasters strike — like Hurricane Michael, which is bearing down on the Florida Panhandle as I type — it’s first responders who will be there to help those in need during the aftermath.

This month, Macaroni Grill is showing first responders some well-deserved love and appreciation with some good ol’ comfort food.

How First Responders Can Score Free Food at Macaroni Grill

If you’re a police officer, firefighter, paramedic or hospital medical staffer, grab your proof of service and head over to Macaroni Grill for free spaghetti and meatballs now through Oct. 31.

And this isn’t just any old spaghetti and meatballs. This is Mom’s Ricotta Meatballs and Spaghetti, featuring house-made veal, beef, pork and ricotta meatballs over capellini with Pomodorina or Bolognese sauce and topped with Romano cheese.

Ricotta cheese in the meatballs? Yum.

To get your free spaghetti and meatballs, all you have to do is mention the special and show a valid ID to your server. And if you bring your whole family on a Monday or Tuesday, kids 12 and under get a free kids meal with the purchase of an adult entree.

Be sure to share the love and pass this thank you from Macaroni Grill to all of the first responder heroes in your life, so they can enjoy some free spaghetti and meatballs after a long day of keeping us all safe and healthy.
