Graduation 2020 Deals: How to Celebrate Memorial Day With Free Food and Drinks

Memorial Day is today, though celebrations may look a little different in 2020. While everyone has been impacted by new guidelines and social distancing measures, a certain group of people is missing out on another kind of celebration: graduation. The class of 2020, both high school and college seniors, is missing out on graduation ceremonies and celebrations, as well as traditional Memorial Day activities.

But some brands are trying to make the situation a little easier with Memorial Day deals on food and drinks, plus some deals solely for graduates. Pizza Hut, for example, is treating the class of 2020 to a free pie, while Chili's is offering a special for anyone celebrating Memorial Day.

So whether you're celebrating a class of 2020 graduate, or simply honoring Memorial Day, use the food and drink deals below and order takeout or curbside pickup.
