McDonald's is making the end of 2020 a place to find much food joy. Right now, free food can be added the McRib and Holiday Pie joy in the Stateline.

It's like a Christmas miracle that the McRib sandwich and McDonald's Holiday Pies are in the Rockford area at the same time. Now, comes news that McDonald's is giving away all kinds of free food as we cruise into the holidays.

The McDonald's free food giveaway begins Monday, December 14 and goes through December 24.

You only have to make a $1 purchase to secure your free food. Also, you'll need to make your order using the McDonald's app.

The items McDonald's will be giving away will be fictional Christmas characters' favorite foods... or at least foods McDonald's thinks they would love.
