Culver's restaurants across the country raised more than $40,000 in the first ever Scoop of Thanks Day on August 11. For a $1 donation to FFA or other agricultural groups, guests received a scoop of fresh frozen custard.
"Our guests really stepped up to give thanks for the abundant food American farm families provide," says Phil Keiser, president & CEO of Culver's. "We were excited to set aside a day when the entire Culver's community could make a contribution that supports the next generation of farmers."
Scoops of Thanks Day is part of the Culver's Thank You Farmers program, an initiative that recognizes all farmers for their hard work and dedication in growing and producing the wholesome food that feeds our nation. To date, the program has raised more than a half million dollars in support of the National FFA Organization and Foundation, local FFA chapters, and a variety of local agricultural organizations.
