(CNN NEWSOURCE) — 7-Eleven is shaking things up for its annual “7-Eleven Day” celebration.

Locations usually give out free slurpees on July 11, making it the busiest day of the year for the chain.

Given the coronavirus pandemic, the retailer says it will donate one million meals to Feeding America to celebrate its annual holiday, instead.

7-Eleven is still giving out free slurpees, but not all in one day. App users can collect the free offer any time in July.
