Customers at JFK exchanged foreign currency for new McDonald’s international menu items to support a local charity
The McDonald’s outlet at JFK Terminal 4 raised funds for Ronald McDonald House New York while also celebrating its Worldwide Favorites menu.
During the fundraising event, customers were able to exchange any amount of international currency for one of the four global menu items – which included a Stroopwafel McFlurry (surely the best named menu item of 2019) from the Netherlands and the Grand McExtreme Bacon Burger from Spain – through McDonald’s International Currency Exchange.

The restaurant donated the foreign currency collected to Ronald McDonald House New York, which provides temporary lodging and care for more than 35,000 families while their child battles cancer.
“I can’t think of a better place than T4 for McDonald’s to celebrate the launch of their new international menu items,” President and CEO of JFKIAT, the company which operates T4, Roel Huinink, said.
“With more than 21 million passengers travelling through T4 every year, we serve as the international gateway for New York City and the rest of the United States. As such, we offer a wide range of exciting dining and retail options – including this McDonald’s – to accommodate travellers from all over the world.”
