Chick-fil-A is giving away free food this week.

On Tuesday, Chick-fil-A plans to give away free chicken and more for the chain’s annual Cow Appreciation Day. Any customer who shows up to Chick-fil-A wearing a cow costume – or at least something cow-related – can get a free entrée.

Cow Appreciation Day begins when restaurants open Tuesday morning and continues until 7 p.m. Customers are able to get free food only when employees verify that they are, in fact, dressed in a cow-themed outfit, so orders need to be made in person – not via the restaurant’s app.

Customers can get free entreés from either the breakfast menu or the lunch/dinner menu, including chicken biscuits, chicken sandwiches, and chicken nuggets. Salads are among the few entreés that are not available as part of the promotion.

Children dressed in cow apparel can receive a free kid’s meal.

Cow Appreciation Day is Chick-fil-A’s biggest annual promotion. According to the company, 1.8 million people dressed up last year to get free food.

This is the 14th year in which Chick-fil-A has hosted Cow Appreciation Day. It previously was held on Fridays, but demand was so overwhelming that the company decided to move it to a less busy day.
