Stepping up to the plate to show the Enfield Police Department how important they are involved soup, salad, lasagna, fettuccine Alfredo and bread sticks--lots of bread sticks.
Every Labor Day, the Olive Garden chain serves food to those who serve the community--they deliver free lunch to firefighters, police officers and emergency room personnel who are working the holiday.
"We want to thank them for what they're doing for us and make sure they know we appreciate their making us safe, " said Laura Driscoll, the assistant manager of the Olive Garden location in Enfield.
The company has been offering free lunches on Labor Day for 13 years, and this year Driscoll loaded up her car and headed to Enfield Police headquarters with enough food to feed the entire force.
"It's very nice especially on a holiday," said Enfield Police Captain Jeff Golden. "Our members are away from their families and not celebrating the holiday. It's a very nice gesture."
The Orlando-based company says more than 800 of their restaurants across the country participate in providing the Labor Day lunches to public servants.
