The best meal is a free meal.

This Tuesday, July 12th, Chick-Fil-A will be dishing out free meals in honor of its annual Cow Appreciation Day.

Is there a catch? Of course there's a catch. Free food is never just free.

To qualify for a free entree you have to wear at least one cow-like accessory to your local Chick-Fil-A. 

The offer is valid from the time the store opens, up until 7 p.m. 

If you're a bit rusty on your cow accessory making skills/ideas, Chick-Fil-A's Tumblr has several helpful posts with suggestions on cow accessories you can put together in time for July 12th.

Whether it be a cute cowbell necklace, or just some black and white spots on your shirt, this is an easy and creative way to snag a free lunch tomorrow.

Not to mention, it's way less hardcore than previous Chick-Fil-A free food giveaways.


Last year, those patrons who came in dressed in a full cow suit were given an entire meal free, while those who wore partial cow attire were given only free entrees.


Well, at least now you'll know what's going on if you see crowds of cows milling about in your office. Don't worry, they're just in it for the free food.
