Central Coast McDonald’s to Griddle Free Back-to-School Breakfast

McDonald’s is helping kick-start your little pupil’s year with a free breakfast. On Tuesday, Sept. 13, participating restaurants will offer free breakfast from 6:30-9:30 a.m. to students in kindergarten through eighth grade.

At Central Coast restaurants, students can enjoy the iconic Egg McMuffin breakfast sandwich, made with a freshly cracked egg, along with apple slices and choice of milk or OJ.

“There are a lot of changes taking place at McDonald’s, but one thing that’s never changed is our commitment to the well-being of children,” said David Peterson, a local McDonald’s franchisee and president of the McDonald’s Operators/Operator Association of Central Coast. “We are proud to offer a great-tasting, free breakfast made with quality ingredients for the second year throughout the Central Coast.”

Earlier this month, McDonald’s announced a number of changes across the menu as the company continues to evolve.

One change included removing artificial preservatives from several items, including Chicken McNuggets and breakfast pork sausage patties.

Students younger than 13 years of age are required to be accompanied by a parent/adult to redeem this offer. Offer may vary throughout the state at participating McDonald’s restaurants, and only one breakfast is allowed per student.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
