IHOP will once again be serving up free short stacks of buttermilk pancakes on Tuesday in honor of National Pancake Day.
Hungry breakfast lovers can stop by participating IHOP restaurants in the U.S., Canada and Puerto Rico for three flapjacks until 10 p.m.
IHOP is encouraging customers who didn’t have to pay for their pancakes to donate the money to charity.
The restaurant chain has raised $13 million for charity since it started its National Pancake Day celebrations in 2006, according to its website.
The tradition of eating pancakes on the day before Ash Wednesday, which marks the beginning of Lent and is also called Mardi Gras or Fat Tuesday, has been around for centuries.
Christians in the UK and Ireland refer to it as “Shrove Tuesday,” but it has earned the nickname “Pancake Day” or “Pancake Tuesday” over the years.
