BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — In what is somewhat of an annual tradition, McDonald's restaurants through the region will be providing free breakfast to students on the first day of the FCATs, April 15th.
From our friends at McDonald's:
Participating McDonald’s restaurants in Palm Beach and Treasure Coast counties and around the state are inviting students taking Florida’s Comprehensive Assessment Test (FCAT) to enjoy a free breakfast on April 15, the first day of testing.
The breakfast offer will run from 6 to 8:30 a.m., and includes an Egg McMuffinâ, a choice of 1% low-fat white milk or a small orange juice, and a package of Apple Slices.
This is the fourth consecutive year that McDonald’s restaurants in Palm Beach, Martin, St. Lucie, Indian River and Okeechobee counties are offering students free breakfast on the first day of the FCAT. Last year, local McDonald’s restaurants served thousands of students on exam day.
“We are excited to continue the breakfast program. Along with many other local McDonald’s owner-operators, managers, and crew members I am a parent and we believe it is important to contribute to the well-being of children in our communities,” said Joe Conrado, McDonald’s owner-operator. “The breakfast McDonald’s is offering includes fruit, an English muffin made with 8 grams of whole grain, and low-fat dairy, which will help students start the day.
“Regardless of whether students eat at home, at their schools or at McDonald’s, a balanced breakfast on FCAT day is important,” Conrado continued.
Students and their families who enjoy breakfast at McDonald’s on April 15 are encouraged to plan their visits accordingly so they arrive to school on time.
The breakfast offer is available at participating McDonald’s restaurants in Florida and valid while supplies last. No substitutions or group redemptions are permitted. Students under age 15 must be accompanied by a parent and be present to redeem the offer.
