With the countdown clock to Halloween almost coming to a close, have you considered what you're going to feed the family before the kiddos get all sugared up running through the streets of the Hudson Valley?


No? Me either.

Pre-covid, our neighborhood group would all get together at one of the houses, order a bunch of pizzas, and carb-load before candy, but it's been a while since that happened.

Lucky for us, there's a number of local deals, including some freebies, to feed the ghouls, goblins and ghosts before they take to the streets.

Hudson Valley Halloween Meal Freebies

There's a decently wide variety of freebie and discounted food options to fulfill different appetites for Halloween. In no particular order:

  • Domino's Pizza: Make a $7.99 (or more) purchase and receive a coupon for a two-topping pizza to use within 30 days.
  • IHOP (there are still locations in Newburgh, Monroe, and Mohegan Lake): With the purchase of an adult entree, kids 12 and under can create their own FREE 'scary face pancake' - runs 4pm-10pm through Halloween night.
  • Sonic (New Windsor & Middletown): will be serving up $.50 corndogs. 'Come in costume. Say "Trick or Treat". Or don't, because this deal is all day for everyone. Just order a corn dog, or two, or three and they're 50-cents. All. Day.'
