Culver’s gives back to farm families
Culver’s of Merrill has partnered with Merrill High School FFA as part of a larger, nationwide effort to thank the family farmers on which the restaurants depend. Beginning Tuesday, Aug. 11, for every one Kid’s Meal Scoopie Token dropped into special countertop canisters, Culver’s will donate $1 per scoop of Custard to Merrill High School FFA.
The canisters will be used to collect monetary donations as well. Through the “Thank You, Farmers” partnership, participating restaurants across the U.S. will help spread awareness and generate support for the nation’s hardworking farmers.
“Culver’s restaurants as a whole have depended on family farms since the first restaurant opened in 1984,” says Culver’s of Merrill owner Joe and Lori Wakefield. “We want to show our gratitude by helping support the next generation of farmers. The Scoopie Token donation program is a great opportunity to teach kids the value of giving back to those who give us so much.”
Merrill High School FFA helps this next generation meet the challenges of feeding a growing population by encouraging members to develop their own unique talents and explore their agricultural interests in a broad range of career pathways – from future farmers to biologists to veterinarians.
Culver’s of Merrill takes pride in being an active member of the community by supporting local charities and organizations since 2010.
“Culver’s is proud to call the dairy land of Wisconsin home,” said Craig Culver, Co-founder of Culver’s. “Coming from a place connected to the farms that produce the dairy and grow the food that’s made the restaurant what it is, celebrating and supporting the FFA just feels right.”
