Join Us In Saying Thanks Culver’s Commitment to America’s Family Farms Runs Deep
2017: Thank You Farmers by the Numbers
At Culver’s we know that the wholesome food we’re so proud to serve wouldn’t exist without our country’s agricultural industry. That’s why we’re proud to support agricultural education and FFA through Thank You Farmers. FFA provides students a path to achievement in premier leadership, personal growth and career success through agricultural education.
This past year was one of our biggest yet for supporting our country’s future ag leaders. Have a look at the past year of Thank You Farmers, by the numbers:
Over 4 million seeds were planted on over 100 acres of land to grow 12 Thank You Farmers corn mazes across the country.
Guests purchased 43,955 scoops of Fresh Frozen Custard and raised over $50,000 for FFA on Scoops of Thanks Day.
FFA members submitted 653 essays to our FFA Essay Contest. Three winners were chosen to receive a combined $15,000 to bring their FFA chapters to the National FFA Convention & Expo.
“The kids today are our future. The FFA builds great young leaders.” – Mike Kriegl, franchisee, Culver’s of Neenah, Wisconsin
Culver’s restaurants donated 238 FFA blue jackets to deserving student members.
Across five Fridays this year, 16 ag influencers shared their stories on Culver’s social media channels as part of #FarmingFridays.
“We serve great wholesome food that we can truly be proud of, and without our farmers, none of this would be possible.” – Kayla Halfacre, franchisee, Culver’s of Dixon, Illinois
