Online Schooling, Working at Home, I’m Lovin’ McDelivery!

McDonald's McDelivery to the Rescue!

By Melissa Shrader Editor/Publisher Fort Collins Macaroni Kid September 14, 2020

Let’s face it, with the kids at home doing online school and parents working from home and balancing the normal daily commitments during the week, it's tough to get breakfast, lunch, and dinner on the table every day. 

More than ever, it feels like there aren't enough hours in the day. Why not take a break from planning a meal and cleaning up after the meal and order your family favorites from McDonald's through McDelivery! You can make it a special surprise for the kids or order for the whole family.

Last week I planned a surprise dinner for my daughter. I knew we would be busy with school in the morning, I had zoom meetings all afternoon, and I needed to work in the evening. This was the perfect day to plan a McDelivery! I know my daughter loves the Hamburger Happy Meal, and I decided to surprise her with a special dessert, the Oreo McFlurry. She was so excited she could get her favorite treat without leaving the house and I was excited I could provide this for her without leaving the house too. When you’re quarantining with your family, it’s fast and easy to get your favorite breakfast, lunch, or dinner delivered right to your front door through UberEATS, DoorDash and GrubHub. It’s so easy to download their apps and quickly make your food selections and in no time at all, fresh hot food at your door!

My favorite at McDonald's are the Chicken McNuggets, but I’ve always wanted to have a little spice added.

Guess what? Spicy McNuggets are now available for a limited time!

We used UberEATS to deliver our McDelivery. Their site gives you an opportunity to give specific details on how you would like to have your meal dropped off. You can choose from having the driver hand you the meal to having them drop it at your door and leave. We opted for the driver to deliver at the door and leave. There is a comment box where you can put further instruction. Use the comment box to give careful instruction including instructions like ringing the doorbell when your food is delivered or where to place the food, etc.
