There are few people doing more to protect us than healthcare workers on the frontline of the COVID-19, or novel coronavirus, pandemic. They deserve our thanks and admiration in the best of times, and a whole lot more than that right now.
Hopefully, the healthcare workers and first responders in your life have been getting many thanks for their sacrifices and help during the outbreak. In addition to that, restaurants and companies around the country are showing their appreciation with a little food (and coffee!) to help them power through long, exhausting days. To help them know where they can grab a free bite to eat, we've pulled together some of the best and most readily available deals for both healthcare workers and first responders, including some offers from Starbucks, Krispy Kreme, and even Crocs.
Check back often. We'll keep updating the list as more deals surface.
