McDonalds offering AIMS students free breakfast on first two test days | Events
McDonalds restaurants around Arizona are inviting students from third grade to eighth grade, who are taking the AIMS test, to enjoy a free breakfast.
There are two days, April 15 and 16, where students can come in and get a free breakfast, from 6 a.m. to 9 a.m. Students will enjoy an Egg McMuffin, Apple Slices and the choice of 1% milk, fat free chocolate milk or a small orange juice.
Students are required to be accompanied by a parent, there are to be no group redemptions, and breakfasts will remain free while supplies last. Students must also be present to receive the meal, and there are no substitutions.
During the 2012 AIMS testing, many participating Arizona McDonalds restaurants served more than 81,000 students a free breakfast on the first two days of the test.
“Whether students eat at home, at their schools or at McDonald’s, it’s important to have a well-balanced breakfast every day, especially before taking an exam like the AIMS,” said Michael Osborne, who owns and operates several McDonald’s restaurants in Tucson, in a recent news release. “As many members of the McDonald’s family are parents themselves, we feel it is important for us to contribute to the well-being of children in our communities. A wholesome breakfast that includes food groups like fruit, whole grains and low-fat milk will help provide the fuel and nutrients students need to start the day.”
