TOLEDO, Ohio — Teachers have continued to educate and positively influence students despite all the changes we have endured. For all their amazing work we celebrate teachers during Teacher Appreciation Week. As a thank you to teachers, McDonald’s will be offering a free item “on the house.”

McDonald’s restaurants across the Toledo area will offer a free bakery menu item with any purchase during Teacher Appreciation Week, May 3 – 7. Choose from 1 of 3 baked goods: cinnamon roll, blueberry muffin and apple fritter.  Offer is valid at participating restaurants in the Cleveland, Akron, Youngstown, Columbus, Cincinnati, Dayton, Lima, Toledo and Zanesville, Ohio areas. A valid school I.D. for the 2020-2021 school year must be shown for redemption.

“Over the last year and a half, the teaching community has stepped up in a big way, keeping students engaged and classes going throughout the many shifts and turbulence,” Tamer Metawa, local McDonald’s Owner/Operator, said. “As local business owners, we are honored to give this small token of appreciation to our teachers as a way to say, ‘thank you’.”

 Whether teaching virtual, in-person, or a combination of both, teachers have remained a vital backbone of Toledo communities, and this Teacher Appreciation Week, McDonald’s wants to do their part in giving back to the teacher community.
