Due to the coronavirus pandemic, dining indoors can be dangerous for you and the restaurant's employees. Check the CDC's Food Safety and Eating Out guidelines to understand the risks involved. Consider ordering food to-go or getting delivery to support your favorite restaurants.Right now, in the midst of a pandemic, there are already plenty of reasons to thank first responders for the work they do. That's driven home even more on September 11.?

Every year restaurants around the country take the day as an opportunity to offer something extra to first responders as a way of saying thanks, having been reminded of the important, life-saving work they do every day.

Still, first responders will find free and discounted meals at chains like Panda Express?and?Bonefish Grill.?
