Cincinnati restaurant provides free St. Patrick’s Day carryout meal for law enforcement

Yard House serves holiday meal to law enforcement, employees, food pantry

DOWNTOWN CINCINNATI (FOX19) - With all area restaurants at “take-out only” status due to the coronavirus pandemic, many businesses found themselves scrambling St. Patrick’s Day to figure out what to do with all the extra food they’d ordered for now-canceled celebrations.

Instead of letting it all go to waste, Yard House at The Banks in downtown Cincinnati provided law enforcement a free St. Patrick’s Day meal of corned beef, cabbage and potatoes.

“We had a huge special planned, so giving it all away to law enforcement is better than thousands of dollars in great food going to waste in this crisis,” said Chef Nicholas Andersen on the eve of the holiday.

“We want to try and help the folks out there keeping us safe and informed."
