Local restaurant thanks first responders with special lunch

For most, Labor Day is a time spent with family and friends enjoying time-off. But for local first responders, it’s a day of hard work ensuring our communities are safe.

This Labor Day (Monday, September 2), a group of first responders selected by your local Olive Garden restaurant will be recognized for their hard work in the local community.

All of Olive Garden’s 850+ restaurants – including the ones in your area – will deliver and serve a complimentary lunch to a first responder organization of their choice in their community as way to give back to those who protect and serve us each and every day.

This is the 18th consecutive year that Olive Garden has coordinated this nationwide effort.
