McDonald’s is making school day mornings a little brighter for educators by showing appreciation with a free breakfast Thank You Meal. This offer is available October 11 – 15, 2021.
In 2020, McDonald’s restaurants gave away 12 million free Thank You Meals to first responders and healthcare workers. Now McDonald’s wants to pick up the bill for educators during these tough times.
Teachers Eat Free at McDonald’s
All educators – teachers, administrators, and school staff are eligible for a free breakfast! Head to your local participating McDonald’s during breakfast hours from Oct. 11-15 and show a valid work ID for a free breakfast! 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, including initiatives like McTeachers’ Night, coordinating food drops at educators’ homes after school, and free meals during the pandemic. Taking our support of educators national through the Thank You Meal program will allow even more educators to be recognized, and is just a small token of our appreciation.
To make sure educators feel recognized and appreciated by all of us, everyone is invited to honor a special educator in their life. Whether it’s your kid’s favorite teacher, or an educator making a difference in your community, or one who has impacted your life, share how they inspire you by using #ThankYouMeal on Twitter, TikTok, or Instagram, now through Oct. 15.
