Today, February 8th, is a sad day if you’re a chipotle lover,  because Chipotle is temporarily shutting all its U.S. stores until 3pm in local timezones for a nationwide staff meeting on food safety. If you’ve been living under a rock then you might now be aware of the reason why, the biggest reason is find to a way to recover from the E. coli outbreak that affected around 50 people across the United States, as well as a norovirus outbreak in Boston that caused somewhere around 140 people to get sick.

If you’re like me this probably didn’t affect you one bit and you kept chowing down the delicious burritos without care.

But this obviously is a cause for concern and the stores do need to figure out where to go from here. For me and millions of Burrito  connoisseurs this has messed with our lunch schedules and left us sad and hungry!

But have no fear for their is a silver lining.

Chipotle has offered to hook you up with some free tortilla goodness for your troubles According to the it’s website, the chain is giving out free burritos to anyone whose lunch plans got messed up today by the store closures. To receive said free burrito, just text “raincheck” to 888-222. The company says it will then text you back with a link where you can get the coupon for a free burrito within the next few days!!!

This further solidifies my belief that something good always comes from the bad(and this time it’s in burrito form) 🙏🏼
