Nursing can be a seriously tough job — and also a thankless one.

That’s why Chipotle is doing its part to give back to nurses in the best way — with free food, of course!

On Tuesday, June 4, nurses with a valid nursing license or ID can receive a free burrito, burrito bowl, salad or order of tacos with the purchase of an entrée of equal or greater value. The Mexican eatery offered this same deal to nurses last year around this time as well.

Because nurses’ schedules can go beyond the traditional 9-5 working hours, the deal is valid at all Chipotle locations from open to close.

The buy-one-get-one deal is valid for all types of nurses, including RN, NP, CRNA, CNS, CNM, LVN, CNA and local equivalents or analogues as long as they present valid identification, such as a nursing license or hospital or medical office nursing ID.

The offer is available for in-restaurant orders only and is not valid for online, via mobile or on catering orders. There is a limit of one free entrée item per eligible customer with the purchase of an entrée item of equal or greater value.

“We know that nurses are some of the most hardworking individuals and Chipotle wants to do its part to recognize these dedicated professionals who are helping to cultivate a better world,” Laurie Schalow, chief corporate reputation officer at Chipotle said in a press release.

“We’re inviting all nurses to come into Chipotle to show us their IDs to redeem our token of appreciation.”

Another Way To A Free Burrito

If you’re not a nurse, you still have a chance at free Chipotle, thanks to the NBA Finals. The restaurant chain will be giving out up to $1 million in free food every time an on-air announcer says the word “free”.

You’ll just have to head to Twitter to get a code that Chipotle will tweet once the word is said, then text it to 888222 to get another code for your free entree.

Taco Bell Is Diving In Too

And — heads up — you can get a free Doritos Locos Taco at Taco Bell thanks to the games, too! This deal will be on June 18, as long as the road team steals a win from the home team in the upcoming series.
