In recognizing those who "labored" on Labor Day, a Meridian business treated some of the city's finest to lunch.
Olive Garden delivered lunch to the Meridian Police Department Monday.
For the eighth year in a row, the restaurant chain did that for public servants across the nation, to thank them for what they do for the community.
"For those that don't have an off day, we can do a little thing as far as feeding y'all to make y'all feel special," said Lisa Peden of Olive Garden. "And let y'all know we appreciate y'all."
"This is very, very much appreciated for us out here. We're out here continuously through all the holidays," said the MPD's Don Hopkins. "And to have a place like Olive Garden show their appreciation that they've done today and present us with this meal is, it's really a wonderful experience and a great, great thing to have happen to us."
The Labor Day lunch was lasagna, spaghetti, bread sticks, salad and tiramisu.
