See also

Today, March 4, 2014 is a day for free food and giving. National Pancake Day, as it is known, has been celebrated since 2006 and is an IHOP annual tradition. It’s a day when families head to their local IHOP for a serving of pancakes, complements of the house, as reported by the Washington Post on March 4, 2014.

What You Get:

As part of the National Pancake Day celebration, IHOP serves each guest a free short stack of buttermilk pancakes. Of course, guests are welcome to add side dishes, beverages, etc., but the free component of the meal is a short stack of pancakes, one serving per person.

What They Ask:

National Pancake Day is more than just a day for some free food. It is also a day for charity and IHOP asks that each recipient of free pancakes return the favor by donating to support charities in the local community. The recipient of this year's event is Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals but there are sometimes other charities to which you can give. Guests are under no obligation to contribute and any contribution size is welcome.

Find Out More:

National Pancake Day has helped raise more than $13 million for charity since its inception in 2006 and IHOP is hoping that this year will be another successful one as it helps raise funds for the Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals and other non- profits.
