McDonald's Will Start Selling Basic Groceries Across Australia

McDonald's Australia wants to help Australians who might not be able to get their essential groceries done during the coronavirus pandemic.

The fast food giant has announced plans to sell milk and bread at Drive-Thru if people are running low at home.

The decision will be implemented to run 24/7 and will hopefully alleviate the pressure on people to shop for the bare essentials.

McDonald's Australia said: "From Wednesday onwards, in addition to our usual Macca's menu, customers will also be able to pick-up two or three litre bottles of full cream or skim milk, as well as packs of English muffins and gourmet bread rolls.

"Our contactless service removes any need for touch contact between our employees and customers, making it a safe way for people to get food and drinks, as well as these essential basics."

Sure, milk and bread doesn't suddenly turn McDonald's into a convenience store or supermarket, but at least it will allow you to pick up some supplies when you're getting a Big Mac.

The company is adjusting to new rules introduced by the Australian government and has closed its dine-in restaurant areas to prevent the spread of Covid-19.

But, they're also doing their best to help those people on the frontline of the pandemic.

In a statement on social media, Macca's wrote: "Some of the most important people at this time are the people who look after us and our loved ones.

"To say thanks, we're shouting any healthcare workers a free small McCafé hot drink or medium soft drink."

The offer was made available last week (March 23) and will run until May 17. All you have to do is rock up to a restaurant in your uniform or show your healthcare ID and you'll be slurping away in no time.

It's a similar measure brought in by the British arm of the company.

The fast food giant announced the kind gesture as a way to 'thank and reward' people who are working around the clock during the pandemic.
