SALT LAKE CITY — Utah's 18 Chick-fil-A restaurants are inviting customers to eat cookies for a good cause Tuesday.

For each Chocolate Chunk Cookie sold Tuesday, Chick-fil-A will donate the entire cost of the cookie — $1.19 — to Primary Children's Hospital.

One out of nine children cared for at Primary Children's hospital cannot afford to pay for their medical expenses, and donations to the hospital "are used to support patients through charity care, research, therapy programs and more," according to the hospital's website.

"We're honored to partner with Primary Children's Hospital to help contribute to the life-saving work that reaches far beyond Salt Lake City," said Eric Champeau, franchise Operator of Chick-fil-A at Sugar House. "We encourage community members to visit any Utah Chick-fil-A location and help support this worthwhile cause."
