Culver's Raises Over $2.5 Million for 'Thank You Farmers' Fund
Wisconsin Ag Connection - 10/11/2019
The Wisconsin-based Culver's restaurant chain announced it has contributed over $2.5 million to the National FFA Foundation and other groups since the start of its 'Thank You Farmers' initiative six years ago. The franchise says the program has connected
with people across the nation in its goal to thank family farmers who have made Culver's the business it is today.
"We're facing a turning point in agriculture, and the responsibility to feed a growing population falls on all of us, not just farmers," said Culver's CEO Joe Koss. "Our guests understand this, and that's why they've helped us to raise money every year to support
the future of agriculture."
During 2019, Culver's restaurants in dozens of states donated over $400,000 to agricultural education initiatives in schools and organizations like FFA.
Of the total amount donated through the project, about 75 percent has come from guests supporting local fundraising at Culver's restaurants. The remain was contributed by the company in the form of sponsorships.
Next year, the food chain plans to continue to fundraise for initiatives and organizations like FFA that work toward solutions for feeding our growing population.
