Connecticut Olive Garden restaurants are honoring local police and fire officials and emergency room personnel with free lunches on Labor Day.
“Olive Garden’s Labor Day lunch deliveries are part of our ongoing commitment to serve our local communities," Enfield Olive Garden General Manager Timothy Connelly said in a statement. "On Labor Day we are thanking those who keep us safe and serving those who serve us every day. This is the 13th consecutive year Olive Garden has coordinated a national Labor Day lunch delivery program. Over the years, we have developed relationships with a number of community organizations this way.”
The lunches vary in each location and usually include lasagna, fettuccine alfredo or another pasta dish and salad, breadsticks and dessert.
The West Hartford Olive Garden will deliver lunch to the West Hartford Police Department on Raymond Road, the Orange restaurant will serve the Milford Fire Department and the Enfield location will bring lunch to the Enfield Police Department at noon. The Danbury restaurant also plans on delivering lunch to 20 people at the Danbury Police Department at 11:30 a.m.
All Connecticut restaurants are participating, according to a spokesperson representing Olive Garden. Other Olive Garden locations include Manchester, Waterbury and North Haven, according to the website.
