McDonald’s® FLORIDA RESTAURANTS TO SERVE STUDENTS
FREE BREAKFAST ON FIRST DAY OF FCAT– MONDAY, APRIL 16
McDonald’s has been doing this for a few years now and I just love that they are feeding trying to give our children a good start before the dreaded FCAT’s: Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test. This is a test that most parents and teachers loathe, I did a post last year on the Pros and Cons of the FCAT’s, but that is another story for another day. Monday April 16th the first day of testing as usual McDonald’s is offering each child a free breakfast.
Below is the press release:
West Palm Beach, FL — For the third consecutive year, McDonald’s Palm Beach –Treasure Coast restaurants will join the 800 McDonald’s around the state to serve a free breakfast to students taking Florida’s Comprehensive Assessment Test (FCAT). The free breakfast includes an Egg McMuffinâ, choice of milk or a small orange juice, and Apple Slices.
The offer is available for one day only on Monday, April 16, 2012 from 6 a.m. to 8:30 a.m., while supplies last. (Students under age 15 must be accompanied by a parent and child must be present to redeem the offer. The offer is in-store only and no substitutions or group redemptions are permitted.)
“A wholesome breakfast gives kids a great start to the day,” said Joe Conrado, McDonald’s owner operator. “As moms and dads ourselves, McDonald’s local owner operators want to help support families and the FCAT breakfast is just one way. Whether students eat at home, at their school or at McDonald’s, it’s important to have a well-balanced breakfast every day.”
As local business leaders and parents, McDonald’s 120 franchise owners in Florida are committed to contributing to the well-being of children in their communities. Last year, more than 120,000 students statewide enjoyed a free McDonald’s breakfast prior to taking the FCAT. Many schools also serve free breakfast the morning of FCAT. Parents can check with their child’s school to see if a free breakfast is offered.
