For families who want to spend time together while eating their dinner, they will be able to earn free ice cream at more than 100 Chick-fil-A restaurants all across the United States, according to the company.

The fast-food chain, best known for its religious beliefs and fried chicken sandwiches, has now launched the program. The rules include turning your cell phone onto silent and putting it inside of a box placed on each table. They have dubbed the box the "cell phone coop" and it has to stay there for the entire meal.

“We really want our restaurant to provide a sense of community for our customers, where family and friends can come together and share quality time with one another,” Brad Williams, a Georgia-based Chick-fil-A operator, said in a statement. “But as we all know, technology increasingly demands more of our time and can be a big distraction, even while we’re eating.”

The new boxes will be available at more than 150 locations as the program grows, Williams said. This idea comes from a long line of strange ways to win free food in the past, including one summer when people earned free food for dressing like a cow.

As of the time this article was written, there hasn't been an announcement as to how one can go about finding out which local restaurants offer the program, though the cardboard boxes in the picture above might be a good indication.

If your local Chick-fil-A doesn’t have the boxes, you can write it on the suggestion cards and they will work to get them.
