(WXYZ) — Little Caesars will deliver one million pizzas to healthcare workers and first responders across the country.

Pizzas will be donated to hospitals, police departments and fire departments around the nation beginning Tuesday. Customers will also be able to join the effort by using the Little Caesars app to send a pizza to medical personnel, police and firefighters in their local areas.

"Hospital staff and first responders are working around the clock to help keep us safe and healthy, and they are true heroes," President and CEO Dave Scrivano said. "As a family company, we want to thank all of them in the best way we know how - by delivering a wholesome meal."

The donations will kick off at the Detroit Medical Center Tuesday morning. A total of 600 pizzas will be served: 300 at 11 a.m. and 300 and 8 p.m.
