Whataburger is spreading some serious love to teachers. They’re dishing out free breakfasts and grants, and it’s about time someone showed our educators some serious appreciation.

So, what’s the deal with this awesome program?

**1. Free Breakfasts for Teachers: Because They Deserve It**

Imagine starting your day with a hearty breakfast, on the house. Sounds like a dream, right? Well, Whataburger is making it a reality for teachers. It’s not just about the food—it’s about saying, “Hey, we see you, we appreciate you, and we’ve got your back.”

By hooking teachers up with a free breakfast, Whataburger isn’t just filling their bellies; they’re filling their hearts too. It’s like a food high-five to all the hard work teachers do day in and day out.

During National Teacher Appreciation Week, any school employee who shows their ID badge at dine-in or drive-thru can enjoy a free Taquito, Breakfast on a Bun, or Honey Butter Chicken Biscuit from 5 a.m. to 9 a.m., Monday, May 6 – Friday, May 10.

**2. Grants: Letting Teachers Get Creative**

But wait, there’s more! Whataburger isn’t stopping at breakfast. They’re also handing out grants to teachers. These grants aren’t just about the cash; they’re about giving teachers the green light to dream big and get creative.

Whether it’s funding for classroom supplies, cool projects, or out-of-the-box teaching ideas, these grants are like a shot of espresso for educators’ imaginations. Because when teachers have the resources they need, magic happens in the classroom.

Whataburger will award 63 teachers across its 15-state footprint a $1,000 grant for their school to continue supporting the educators and their students long after National Teacher Appreciation Week is over.

The grants are part of Whataburger’s Feeding Student Success program, which focuses on charitable giving at the intersection of food insecurity and education.

**Why Recognizing Teachers Matters**

Let’s be real: being a teacher ain’t easy. They’re the unsung heroes of our communities, shaping the minds of tomorrow and putting in the hard yards to make it happen. But all too often, they don’t get the recognition they deserve.

That’s where Whataburger comes in. By showing teachers some serious love, they’re not just making their day—they’re making a statement. They’re saying, “Teaching matters. You matter.”

**The Ripple Effect of Appreciation**

But here’s the coolest part: when you appreciate teachers, it’s not just about them. It’s about the ripple effect it creates. When teachers feel valued and supported, they bring their A-game to the classroom. And when that happens, students feel it too.

It’s like a chain reaction of positivity. Teachers feel appreciated, students get inspired, and the whole community benefits. It’s a win-win-win.

**In a Nutshell**

So, there you have it. Whataburger’s got teachers’ backs, plain and simple. By dishing out free breakfasts and grants, they’re not just filling bellies and bank accounts—they’re spreading some serious love to the people who make a difference every single day.
