Calling all pancake lovers: IHOP is dishing out free buttermilk pancakes on Tuesday, March 8.
That’s right. To celebrate National Pancake Day, IHOP restaurants nationwide are serving free short stacks of hotcakes from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Though the pancakes are free, IHOP does ask that you consider leaving a donation for the Children’s Miracle Network Hospital, the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, Shriners Hospitals for Children or other local charities.
“Every pancake we give away has a purpose on National Pancake Day,” IHOP President Darren Rebelez said in a statement. “Through the generosity of our guests and the hard work and commitment of our franchisees and their team members, we will help fund life-saving treatment and care for children in need.”
