IHOP Serves Freebies on National Pancake Day

Steve Floethe/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- There’s nothing like free food for a good cause.  

For the eighth year, IHOP restaurants are offering a free stack of buttermilk pancakes on Tuesday, Feb. 5 from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m.

The popular pancake chain hopes to raise $3 million in donations for the Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals and other local charities. The charities will receive 100 percent of proceeds.

In 2012, IHOP raised more than $3 million for the various charities.  The restaurant has raised over $10 million over the past pancake holidays.

International Pancake Day is typically celebrated on “Fat Tuesday” or the last day before Lent. This year it occurs on Tuesday, Feb. 12.
