Chipotle is giving away free food to teachers

All you need is a valid school ID.

Many people say teachers don't get the credit they deserve. And while that is probably true, at least they can get a free burrito this week.

Chipotle is having a Teacher Appreciation promotion on Tuesday, May 2. From 3 p.m. to close, the restaurant is offering a buy-one-get-one free burrito, salad, bowl, or order of tacos to all educators.

“Chipotle appreciates the educational community and all they do for their students, day in and day out," Mark Crumpacker, chief marketing and development officer at Chipotle said in a news release.

"This is a small -- but tasty -- gesture from us to them to say thanks for their contributions to our classrooms and communities," he added.

The promotion is good for all levels of teachers, faculty, and staff, including preschool through university educators and homeschooling parents. All you need to do to score the free grub is present a valid school ID.

The fine print: The promotion is for in-restaurant orders only and is not valid for online, mobile, fax or catering. There is a limit of one free entrée item per educator customer with the purchase of an entrée item of equal or greater value.

And note – the promotion doesn't mention whether guac is extra.

Chipotle says it has long been a "champion for education and literacy." The company has provided rewards for libraries' summer reading programs and offers tuition reimbursement and discounted tuition programs to their employees.

Earlier this year, Chipotle also introduced “RAD Lands,” an educational video series for kids about food and where it comes from.

This teacher promo is actually a week early – National Teacher Appreciation Day is observed on the Tuesday of the first full week in May (so it'll be May 9th this year).

It's part of the larger Teacher Appreciation Week, which runs May 8-12. Other companies will likely announce similar promotions for the holiday.
