Culvers to raise funds for FFA September 24: Thank You Farmers Project fundraiser gives back to agricultural education
Thank You Farmers Project fundraiser gives back to agricultural education
PRAIRIE DU SAC, Wis.—September 17, 2020—On September 24, guests can help participating Culver’s restaurants raise funds for agricultural education by donating $1 on Scoops of Thanks Day. In return, guests will receive a single scoop of Fresh Frozen Custard as Culver’s way of saying thanks for supporting local FFA chapters and other agricultural organizations.
Scoops of Thanks Day is part of Culver’s Thank You Farmers® Project, which supports agricultural education programs that encourage smart farming and has donated over $2.5 million to the National FFA Organization, local FFA chapters and a variety of agricultural organizations. Over the last six years, this annual fundraiser has raised more than $350,000.
As the global population expands by more than 2 billion by 2050, farmers will be expected to grow 70% more food than they do now. That means that supporting modern agriculture and future generations of farmers is more important than ever.
“The pandemic has made it clear how important the agriculture industry is when it comes to keeping grocery shelves stocked and providing food for our families,” said Jessie Kreke, senior marketing manager at Culver’s. “Programs like FFA help ensure that their members are prepared to become the future leaders of this crucial industry. We’re proud to join our guests in supporting these students on Scoops of Thanks Day.”
