(CNN/Meredith) -- Little Caesars is donating 1 million pizzas to first responders in the next few weeks as the coronavirus pandemic continues.

The chain says pizzas will be donated to hospitals, police departments and fire departments.

The give-back kicks off Tuesday at the Detroit Medical Center in the company's hometown.

Starting April 13, customers can also get in on the action. When you use the Little Caesars app or order online, you’ll have the option to "pie it forward" -- and donate a pizza to a nearby hospital or first responders.
