CHICAGO (UKTN) – Head to Manny’s Deli for a free sandwich on Tuesday – but don’t forget your mask.
The free food started out as a challenge. A few weeks ago on Twitter, Manny’s Cafeteria & Delicatessen – 1141 S. Jefferson St. – said that if they could go 30 days without having to tell a customer to wear a mask properly, they would host a day of free sandwiches. .

It did not work.
But an anonymous donor stepped in and on Tuesday, Manny’s will hand out up to 1,000 free sandwiches to anyone wearing a mask – correctly.
Sandwiches will be distributed on a first come, first served basis. Doors open at 9 a.m.
