No free fries this year
If you went to your favorite fast food restaurant with hopes of getting some free french fries today, you might have been a little disappointed.
Lamb Weston's annual "Free Fries Fryday" event was canceled this year.
In years past, the company gave away free french fries on the Friday before the boat race weekend, and all the money that would have come in from the free fries was donated to the Second Harvest Food Bank by Lamb Weston.
This year, the company is instead donating money directly to Second Harvest.
