Graduation traditions for both college and high school seniors will be very different this year. Rather than crowded stadiums and auditoriums, students will be tuning in for virtual ceremonies and recorded speech videos.
As support during this unexpected time, several chains across the country are offering free food and treats for those celebrating the milestone this spring.
Chipotle is offering a free coupon code for any entree (with the purchase of an entree) to the first 5,000 customers that purchase any graduation-themed gift card from May 21 to June 30. They are also hosting a contest on Instagram; students can enter for the chance to win a $25,000 scholarship.
Graduates can post a video under the hashtag #EdibleMoments with their name and an explanation of how they will be celebrating graduation. 2,020 of these graduates will be selected to receive free Celebration Dipped Fruit Delights from Edible Arrangements.
On Tuesday, May 19, any highschool or college graduate will have the opportunity to stop into any Krispy Kreme for a dozen free donuts. Students must be dressed in their cap and gown or any Class of 2020 merch, including T-shirts or hats. No purchase necessary.
