Participating McDonald’s restaurants across the entire state of New Mexico will be providing free breakfast to students in grades K-8 and teachers on the morning of Wednesday, Sept. 5.

The free breakfast will include a choice of Egg McMuffin or Egg White Delight McMuffin, Apple Slices and 1% White Milk, Minute Maid Orange Juice or Honest Kids Apple Juice.

Studies show there is a strong link between a wholesome breakfast and better performance in school. McDonald’s of New Mexico is proud to partner on this program with Dairy MAX – the nonprofit dairy council that represents dairy farm families in New Mexico – and the Dairy Producers of New Mexico.

McDonald’s owners, who are community members and parents themselves, know the importance of starting the day with a nutritious breakfast, which many children do not have before they head to school.

The free breakfasts will be available from 6-9 a.m. Students must be accompanied by a parent or adult, and teachers must present a valid school ID. No group redemptions are available, and breakfasts will only be served while supplies last. No substitutions.
