Hardee’s gives free breakfast to veterans
MERIDIAN, Miss. (WTOK) -A popular fast-food chain in Meridian gave back to local veterans Monday.
Hardee’s on Frontage Road offered free breakfast to the first 50 veterans who came in between 8 a.m. and 10 a.m. The veterans were able to choose between a sausage or bacon platter without having to worry about payment. Then Hardee’s continued to honor the deal until 10:00, even after the first 50 veterans were served.
District Manager Ron Mason said it’s important to give back to the community and to the people that fought for our country.
“My dad and grandfather were veterans. So it’s very near to my heart to know the things that they did and sacrificed. Even one of my uncles died and gave his life. So it’s a very big deal to me and it’s important that we never forget those people that gave everything for us,” Mason said.
Hardee’s is also helping veterans in west Alabama. The restaurant is sponsoring the Veterans Rodeo in Butler July 30-31, and sponsoring the Ralph Morgan Rodeo in Lauderdale August 6-7.
