The collaboration, dubbed “Motor City Frontline Meals,” offers free breakfast at all participating McDonald’s restaurants in the city of Detroit to all healthcare workers, Detroit Police Department officers, Detroit Fire Department firefighters, paramedics and EMTs, and Detroit Department of Transportation bus drivers.

The promotion starts Monday and extends through the rest of the month, and is in effect from opening until 10:30 a.m.

“First responders and workers on the front lines are keeping our community safe and helping Detroit move forward during this crisis,” Pistons team owner Tom Gores said in a statement. “Their commitment in the face of adversity is inspiring and we are grateful for everything they do.”
