McDonald's distributes free breakfasts to certain categories of people: who can get them
McDonald's is providing free breakfast for teachers and school staff from Monday (October 11), reports USA Today.
Teachers, school staff, and administration can receive free thank you meals from October 11-15 at participating restaurants across the country during breakfast.
A valid work ID is required to receive complimentary breakfasts to be served in the classic Happy Mealbox with one main course of your choice, potato pancakes and a drink.
The five-day giveaway is "the first big national gesture of gratitude" for McDonald's teachers, said Jennifer "JJ" Hilan, the company's vice president of marketing and content management.
The program was inspired by campaigns to reward teachers at local restaurants and is a follow-up to last year's thank-you dinners for people fighting the coronavirus “on the front lines,” Hilan said.
McDonald's first introduced thank-you dinners in the spring of 2020, in the early days of the COVID-19 pandemic. During the two-week campaign, restaurants distributed 12 million meals to medical workers, police officers and firefighters.
“We wanted to take this idea further and thank our teachers in our communities for everything they did and what they do every day,” Hilan said.

Stephanie Cabrera Bentancourt, a former teacher, owner and operator of 18 McDonald's in Miami, believes the gesture will touch the faculty. During the pandemic, her restaurants delivered food to schools and organized McTeachers' Night fundraisers over the years.
“I know it will be highly appreciated,” she said, adding that teachers had to refocus and adapt during the pandemic. "It's a great way to bring the nation's attention to the people who are actually the backbone of every profession in existence."
How to thank a teacher online
McDonald's is also inviting fans to join a social media support campaign for teachers using the hashtag #ThankYouMeal on Twitter, TikTok or Instagram until October 15th.
The restaurant chain rebroadcasts some of the most heartfelt messages on their media channels, and local owners and employees surprise teachers by delivering breakfast to their schools.
