Free Gyros in Chicago – August 31, 2010

Mark your calendar now for Free Gyros Day in Chicago as  Kronos Foods hosts its second “Kronos Free Gyros Day” across Chicagoland on August 31, 2010.   Kronos Foods, Inc., is a leading manufacturer of premium Gyros and other Mediterranean specialty food items, and will also be  helping military families via the Fisher House™ Foundation. Whether it is lunch, dinner or a snack, Kronos Gyros will be free at 54 participating Chicagoland area locations (up from 43 last year — click here to find nearest location).

At the same time, Kronos is encouraging Chicagoans to help military families with a donation to the Fisher House™ Foundation, which enables family members to be close to a loved one at the most stressful times – during the hospitalization for an unexpected illness, disease, or injury. Donation boxes will be provided at each location so customers can give back to military members and their families, while at the same time enjoying an appetizing sandwich. Donations will be used to assist in the operations of the recently opened Fisher House at the Edward Hines Jr. VA Hospital in Hines, Ill.

Come try a gyros sandwich! Gyros is a Greek dish, consisting of meat, tomato, and is served with pita bread, and topped with onions and tomatoes, as well as a flavorful, creamy cucumber sauce called tzatziki or gyros sauce.


While you are out enjoying your free gyros sandwich, Kronos is giving you the opportunity to give back to our military families.  At each participating Kronos Free Gyros Day restaurant you can find a donation box for Fisher House, a home away from home for our nation’s heros.

About Fisher House

The Fisher House™ program is a unique private-public partnership that supports America’s military in their time of need. Because members of the military and their families are stationed worldwide and must often travel great distances for specialized medical care, Fisher House™ Foundation donates “comfort homes,” built on the grounds of major military and VA medical centers. These homes enable family members to be close to a loved one at the most stressful times – during the hospitalization for an unexpected illness, disease, or injury.  There is at least one Fisher House™ at every major military medical center to assist families in need and to ensure that they are provided with the comforts of home in a supportive environment. Annually, the Fisher House™ program helps 12,000 families and has made more than three million days of lodging available to family members since it originated in 1990.
