To honor first responders working this Labor Day, Olive Garden served lunch to the local heroes.
Every year Olive Garden chooses one group to give back to. This year they chose Erie Police Department.
This is the 15th year that Olive Garden has delivered lunch to first responders, as a special thank you for their service.
Monday the pasta bar, salad and bread sticks served between 40 and 50 officers throughout the day at EPD.
Last year Olive Garden gave back to the Millcreek Police Department.
More than 800 olive garden restaurants across the country are participating in the lunch deliveries.
