scoops of Fresh Frozen Custard, and all proceeds will go to FFA and other local agricultural organizations that strengthen American agriculture and the industry’s future leaders.
Scoops of Thanks Day is part of Culver’s Thank You Farmers Project. The project supports agricultural education programs, like the National FFA Organization, that encourage smart and sustainable farming practices in an effort to make sure we continue to have enough food to feed our country’s growing population.
The global population is expected to increase by more than 2 billion by 2050. That means feeding nearly 30 percent more people using the same amount of land and water that we have today. Culver’s recognizes supporting modern agriculture and the people who will be responsible for feeding our growing population has never been more important.
“We’re proud to support local FFA chapters as they continue to prepare young people to strengthen American agriculture,” said Jessie Kreke, senior marketing manager at Culver’s. “Scoops of Thanks Day allows our guests to join us in supporting young leaders who will work to create a sustainable food supply for future generations.”
To date the Thank You Farmers Project has raised over $1.7 million in support of the National FFA Organization, local FFA chapters, and a variety of local agricultural organizations. On Scoops of Thanks Day in 2017, guests purchased 43,955 scoops of fresh frozen custard and raised over $50,000 for FFA chapters.
