Free Breakfast for Educators at McDonald’s This Week

If you know an educator, you need to let them know they can get a free breakfast from McDonald’s this week. They have some of the most difficult jobs out there and one of the largest restaurant chains wants to honor them. From October 11-15, 2021, all educators (teachers, administrators and school staff) can head to a participating McDonald’s, present their valid work ID for a free breakfast in a classic Happy Meal Box

The meal includes a hash brown and a choice of Egg McMuffin®, a Bacon Egg and Cheese Biscuit or a Sausage Biscuit as well as a choice of medium McCafé® hot or iced coffee or a medium soft drink.

“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.”
“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, with educators going above and beyond, we’re excited to recognize them in a way only McDonald’s can.”

This announcement of free breakfast at McDonald’s for educators comes on the heels of the upcoming re-release of the McRib sandwich coming in November.
