There’s nothing like free food for a good cause.  For the eighth year, IHOP restaurants are offering a free stack of buttermilk pancakes today from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m.

The popular pancake chain hopes to raise $3 million in donations for the Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals and other local charities.  The charities will receive 100 hundred percent of proceeds.

In 2012, IHOP raised more than $3 million for the various charities.   The restaurant has raised over $10 million over the past eight pancake holidays.

Pancake day is typically celebrated on “Fat Tuesday” or the last day before Lent.  This year it occurs on Tuesday, February 12.
