McDonald’s Is Offering Free Breakfast to Students to
Kick Off State Testing
Local McDonald’s owners give back to the communities they serve
FORT SMITH, AR (April 2, 2019) – State testing is fast approaching, and McDonald’s is making sure students start their day on a full stomach by offering free breakfast on Tuesday, April 2, in Fort Smith, Arkansas and surrounding areas. Students and even teachers will be able to stop by a participating McDonald’s and pick up a balanced meal to prepare for the big day.
The morning of April 2, students in third through eighth grade, as well as teachers, can visit their local participating McDonald’s from 6:00 to 9:00 a.m. to enjoy their choice of an Egg White Delight McMuffin Sandwich or Fruit and Maple Oatmeal, apple slices, and choice of 1% low fat milk or an Honest Kids Apple Juice Box.
Numerous studies have shown that students who eat breakfast on the morning of a standardized test score significantly higher than those who do not have breakfast.
“It’s our pleasure to offer a wholesome meal to Arkansas students to help them prepare for their state testing,” said Michael Hadley, Arkansas McDonald’s Owner/Operator. “We want our students in Arkansas to be as successful as possible and that is tough to do without a healthy breakfast.” The free breakfast for students and teachers is a demonstration of the McDonald’s Owner/Operators’ commitment to their local communities.
In order to take advantage of the offer, students should visit a participating McDonald’s with a parent or guardian, and teachers should have a valid teacher/school identification card handy.
