On May 5, Culver’s guests can make a $1 donation to agricultural education and receive a single scoop of Culver’s Fresh Frozen Custard as part of the restaurant’s eighth annual Scoops of Thanks Day. Proceeds will go directly to support local FFA chapters and other innovative education opportunities for students.
Scoops of Thanks Day is part of Culver’s Thank You Farmers Project, which supports local agricultural efforts in the communities Culver’s serves and larger, national projects advancing the industry. Feeding a growing population is one piece of the puzzle, but farming is much more than food production. Since 2013, Culver’s guests have helped the company donate more than $3.5 million to engage and prepare the next generation of agricultural leaders.
Culver’s recognizes supporting modern agriculture and the people who will be responsible for feeding our growing population has never been more important.
“Culver’s started in Wisconsin, so we have a deep-rooted appreciation for agriculture that we want to share with our guests,” said Alison Demmer, Culver’s marketing specialist and former Wisconsin FFA president. “Each donation made on May 5 will help local communities support organizations like the FFA and hopefully help our guests feel a deeper connection to the ag industry.”
Scoops of Thanks Day makes supporting the agriculture industry that much sweeter. Guests can receive a single scoop of Vanilla or Chocolate Fresh Frozen Custard, or the Flavor of the Day. This year’s Flavor of the Day is Chocolate Covered Strawberry, a blend of creamy Vanilla Fresh Frozen Custard complemented with plump, sweet strawberries and novelty chocolate.
Last year, Culver’s Scoops of Thanks Day raised a record-breaking $159,480! With the money staying local, FFA members from across the country are able to benefit directly from this fundraiser. Not only does helping ensure our future food supply feel good, but it also tastes good!
