Hungry for pancakes? Or just want to help out a good cause?
Well, today is your day. IHOP is offering free pancakes today, March 12, as part of an annual promotion. The chain hopes to “Flip it Forward” with its annual IHOP Pancake Day, offering a free shortcake of buttermilk pancakes to every customer from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.
In exchange, the restaurants hope diners leave a donation to a Children’s Miracle Network Hospital, The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society or Shriners Hospitals for Children.
Last year the chain said it expected to serve five million pancakes nationwide, which stacked would be nearly 19 miles high.
The dine-in only deal is limited to one short stack per person. Prices vary but the three- stack of pancakes is priced at about $5.79.
