Past or present, we all know an exceptional educator. They inspire and champion the next generation, and over the last year, they have truly stepped up to support their communities, both inside and outside the classroom. That’s why McDonald’s is making school day mornings a little brighter for educators and showing our appreciation with a free breakfast Thank You Meal.*
“Together with our owner/operators, we’re proud to serve the people who make our communities a better place, and this is an important time to say thank you to some of our everyday heroes,” said Joe Erlinger, president, McDonald’s USA. “We were honored to give away 12 million free Thank You Meals to first responders and healthcare workers last year and now, we’re excited to recognize educators in a way only McDonald’s can.”
All educators – such as teachers, administrators and school staff – can simply head to their local participating McDonald’s during breakfast hours from Oct. 11-15 and show a valid work ID for a free breakfast, on us. The Thank You Meals will be served in a classic Happy Meal box filled with an entrée breakfast sandwich, Hash Browns and a beverage. Sandwich choices include an Egg McMuffin®, a Bacon, Egg and Cheese Biscuit or a Sausage Biscuit. Beverage options include a medium McCafé® hot or iced coffee or a medium soft drink.
McDonald’s franchisees have supported educators in the local neighborhoods they own and operate their restaurants for decades. Taking our support of educators national through our Thank You Meal program will allow even more educators to be recognized.
