Public school students can get free breakfasts. So why not the adults who help them learn?

Both Emporia McDonald's are joining in a one-week special through Friday, providing free breakfasts each day for educators. The “Thank You Meal” is a choice of Egg McMuffin, Sausage Biscuit or Bacon, Egg and Cheese Biscuit, along with hash browns and a beverage coffee.

"We were honored to give away 12 million free Thank You Meals to first responders and healthcare workers last year,” Joe Erlinger, President, McDonald's UA said in a statement. “Now, with educators going above and beyond, we're excited to recognize them in a way only McDonald's can."

Teachers, administrators and school staff are eligible for the free breakfast each day this week. They simply need to show a work identification.
