Kids, you're pretty damn cool. You TikTok with grace. Your teen shows are woke. You believe littering has consequences. Society loves you, and is very sorry you can't go to graduation... So sorry that a bazillion brands -- even my childhood headquarters, Chuck E. Cheese -- are throwing free food at you right now. 

And here's the cherry on top: Pizza Hut is giving 500,000 free pizzas to the high school class of 2020.

“Our brand has a long history of celebrating moments that matter -- like graduations -- and Pizza Hut takes pride in being a part of our customers’ big days," said George Felix, chief marketing officer of Pizza Hut, in a press release. "So, it’s only natural that we’d be there for students and their families to help celebrate the accomplishments of the graduating class of 2020." 

This is a whole new kind of pomp, albeit under difficult circumstances. To get your pie, click here, sign up for a "Hut Rewards" account, and receive a digital coupon for a free one-topping medium pizza. The coupon is redeemable through June 4 of this year.

FYI, Pizza Hut offers three contactless delivery options: delivery, carryout, or all-new curbside pickup. You can choose your preferred method while ordering over the phone, through the official Pizza Hut app, or on the Pizza Hut website. It's good practice for the future -- you'll probably be doing this a lot in college.
