If you have a smartphone you're halfway to getting free food this month from Chick-fil-A in Rockford.

It's as simple as downloading the Chick-fil-A app, signing in and that's it.

Slide over to the nearest Chick-fil-A in Rockford and pick up your free 8 piece chicken nuggets.

The best part of this promotion from Chick-fil-A is that they're also treating the existing app users the same as those who are downloading it the first time just to get the free eats.

Running through the end of January, it sounds like Chick-fil-A is rolling out the free food program this month to help promote the new Kale Crunch Side that showed up in restaurants nationwide on Monday.

Chick-fil-A:

The side features a blend of kale and cabbage tossed with Apple Cider and Dijon Mustard Vinaigrette and topped with salted, crunchy almonds. With only 120 calories per serving, Kale Crunch Side is available as an individual or catering offering and can be substituted for Waffle Potato Fries at no additional charge to the customer.

There is only one Chick-fil-A in the Rockford area, 280 North Perryville Road.
