Miracle Mile Rockford is hosting a free thank you luncheon for all Front Line HEROES in Rockford on Saturday, May 23rd .

They will be providing 1,000 meals of hamburgers, pork chop sandwiches, and brats from noon-3PM or until they're gone, whichever comes first.

Who is essential? Basically anyone who is still working but they specifically want to highlight grocery and retail shop workers, police, EMTs and firefiighters, farmers, truckers, delivery folks, postal workers, garbage collectors, elderly care facility employees, gas station attendants, animal clinic & shelter workers, manufacturing, construction and utility workers, hospital and medical staff.

Will they ask for a pay stub as proof? No, they will not. This is an honor system type deal, so let's not abuse it.
