After stuffing $1 million worth of burritos in a burrito vault for National Burrito Day, now Chipotle is putting its money where your mouth is by giving away $1 million dollars worth of free burritos to healthcare workers, starting this Monday. The giveaway will provide 100,000 workers with free food – just one small part of what the brand has donated over the past several years.

"Healthcare professionals have overcome countless challenges in the past several years, continuing to show up and selflessly serve our communities," said Chris Brandt, Chief Brand Officer, via a press release provided to Guilty Eats. "We're proud to continue to support these dedicated individuals and want to express our gratitude with a fresh and convenient meal."

Here’s how it works, via Chipotle:

  • Chipotle will launch a microsite where healthcare professionals can enter to win a free burrito e-card from May 6 through May 10.
  • At the end of National Nurses Week, 100,000 healthcare professionals who entered will be randomly selected to receive an email to verify their healthcare employment status via, the market-leading secure digital identity network.
  • Healthcare professionals who successfully verify their healthcare employment status will receive a free burrito e-card. Winners will be notified starting the week of May 13.

As mentioned, this isn’t the first time Chipotle has let healthcare workers win the burrito lottery. In fact, they’ve given away more than $5 million in free Chipotle over the past few years. Which is, like, one order of Chipotle from me, but I digress. I eat too many burritos, is what I’m saying.

Beyond the burrito giveaway, Chipotle is also encouraging folks to support the healthcare community without beans, cheese and rice by purchasing a Healthcare Heroes E-Gift Card. For every purchase, Chipotle will match 10% and donate to the American Nurses Foundation, between May 1 and May 12, 2024.

Good burritos, and a good cause? What could be better than that?
