In honor of National Nurses Month, which is celebrated each year throughout the month of May, I Heart Mac & Cheese today announced two special offers.  The rapidly growing, fast-casual concept specializing in customizable, made-to-order macaroni and cheese bowls and sandwiches, will honor the nursing community – including nurses and nursing students – all month-long, thanking and rewarding them for their service.


“This has been a really tough year for so many, but especially for those in our healthcare community, who have worked tirelessly and, in many cases, without the gratitude they truly deserve,” said I Heart Mac & Cheese’s CEO and Chairman, Steve Giordanella. “Nurses have sacrificed so much during the pandemic and we wanted to find even a small way to show just how much we value and appreciate their dedication to the community.”


There are two ways to enjoy I Heart Mac & Cheese’s National Nurses Month perks:


  • National Nurses Day (Thursday, May 6) – Every I Heart Mac & Cheese location across the country will give one free entrée to each nurse or nursing student who visits.*
  • National Nurses Month (Entire Month of May) – Nurses and nursing students will receive 20 percent off every order, all month long.**


Those wishing to take advantage of these offers must show a valid nurse or nursing student ID.
