Since Rochester, Minnesota is the town with one of the best hospitals in the entire world, I thought I'd make sure everyone knew about this freebie that Chipotle was giving away to 2,000 healthcare workers in Minnesota, Iowa, Wisconsin, Illinois and throughout the U.S..  And when I say "healthcare workers", you don't have to work at Mayo Clinic or a hospital to be eligible for the free food based on a few details in the rules.


Heads up, Healthcare Workers in Southeast Minnesota!  Chipotle is Giving Away Free Food to You!

Chipotle announced the huge news on April 28th that they are celebrating Nurses Week in a huge way!  If you missed it, they are giving away food for a year to a healthcare worker!  Here's what they posted on Instagram:
