McDonald’s Will Be Giving Teachers and School Staff ‘Thank You Meals’. Here’s How To Get Yours.

Teachers and school staff are in for some free meals!

Starting on Monday, October 11th, and running until Friday, October 15th, teachers, administrators, and school staff can get a free ‘Thank You Meal’.

This free ‘Thank You Meals’ will be available at participating locations nationwide during breakfast hours.

To get your free meals all that you need is a valid work ID showing that you work for the school.

The ‘Thank You Meals’ come in a Happy Meal box and you can choose one breakfast entree, hashbrowns, and a drink!

Five days of free breakfast sounds pretty great!

Last year, McDonald’s gave out 12 million meals to first responders such as health care workers, paramedics, police officers, and firefighters.

We wanted to build on that idea and thank our educators in our communities for all that they’ve been doing and what they do really every day.
