“I know it’s been a hard year for the teachers, as well as the students, so we just definitely wanted to show our appreciation to the teachers for all the hard work that they’ve done,” said Eva Wilton, Romano’s Macaroni Grill assistant general manager.

Next month, Romano’s Macaroni Grill will celebrate first responders by donating meals to local firefighters and medical personnel.
