FreeBirthdayMeals.org was designed and launched in March 2011 as a result of not being able to find a comprehensive, up-to-date listing of restaurants that offer free birthday meals in Phoenix, Arizona. We searched the internet and found several decent listings of restaurants that offered free birthday meals, but the listings were not kept up to date, were not localized to a particular city and state, and most importantly of all, were not searchable. We decided to create FreeBirthdayMeals.org so visitors could search for free birthday meals by city, state, cuisine type, etc., and so that any website visitor, including a restaurant owner, could add a new restaurant to the site and help keep the site current.
