Cow Appreciation Day — and thus your chance to score Chick-fil-A freebies — is almost here.
The 12th annual event is set for Tuesday, July 12, and the free food will be available from the time restaurants open until 7 p.m.
The party comes on the hooves of Chick-fil-A being named America’s favorite fast-food chain and earning a record high score on the American Customer Satisfaction Index.
Adults who show up to a Chick-fil-A fashioned like a cow on Tuesday will receive any breakfast, lunch or dinner entree for free. Children dressed like cows will receive a Kids Meal for free.
If you don’t own a cow costume, you can make your own or wear a single cow-print piece of clothing or accessory — “just about any cow-spotted item will work” as the Cow Appreciation Day website’s FAQs put it.
If you’re feeling crafty, Chick-fil-A suggests some DIY cow prints:
- Wear white, and then just add spots. Throw on a white T-shirt with white pants (even sweatpants) and stick on your spots using black paper. You can cut spots out of construction paper and tape them to your shirt and pants.
- If nothing else, you can grab an old white T-shirt and color black spots all over it with a marker.
