IHOP gives away free pancakes for charity Tuesday
On Tuesday, February 5, IHOP has distributed pancakes for charity purpose.
The restaurant chain has been working to inspire diners to draw advantages of the corresponding meal to contribute $3 million to a charity organization called the ‘Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals’ that works for collecting funds for 170 nonprofit medical centers for children.
The company has collected $10 million and has been hosting the giveaway for eight years. Applebee’s parent DineEquity owns it.
A tower of buttermilk pancakes will be offered at more than 1,500 IHOP restaurants from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. The February 5 has been announced by IHOP as the National Pancake Day. The holiday is based on age-old tradition of making pancakes by using all the dairy products prohibited at the time of Lent.
At a Hollywood location on Tuesday, Mallory Hagan, the Miss America 2013, will assist in making and serving pancakes. Recently, some other food chains have started examining business models including do-gooding.
