All educators, such as teachers, administrators and school staff, can head to their local participating McDonald’s during breakfast hours starting Oct. 11 through the 15th and show a valid work ID for a free breakfast.
Teachers will get their pick of an egg McMuffin, a bacon, egg and cheese biscuit or a sausage biscuit with hashbrowns and a beverage all packaged in their signature Happy Meal box.
“As a former teacher, this Thank You Meal means the world to me, and I know it will touch my customers and my employees,” said Stefanie Cabrera Bentancourt, McDonald’s owner/operator based in Miami, Florida. “Educators are the backbone of our communities. They’ve done so much for us, and it’s an honor to join my fellow Owner/Operators across the country to celebrate them.”
To go along with the free breakfast initiative the company is also calling on you to share a story about an educator who has made an impact on your life using #ThankYouMeal on Twitter, Tik Tok or Instagram. They will be looking at your posts from now through Oct. 15.
“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.
The fast-food chain gave away 12 million free "thank you" meals to first responders and health care workers last year.
