In support of agriculture education, Bob Evans Restaurant is hosting its first ever “Egg Crack, Give Back” promotion to raise funds for the National FFA Organization. On Thursday, February 25, guests can help their local Bob Evans Restaurant raise funds for agricultural education by ordering a Farmer’s Choice Breakfast. For every Farmer’s Choice Breakfast dish sold on February 25, Bob Evans will make a $1 donation to the National FFA Organization up to $15,000.
Proceeds from the fundraiser will benefit the FFA and help underwrite Supervised Agricultural Experience (SAE) Grants that give FFA students critical hands-on learning opportunities ranging from agricultural internships and research experience, to entrepreneurship opportunities. “Egg Crack, Give Back” is an extension of the Bob Evans partnership with the FFA, paying homage to founder Bob Evans’ roots as a farmer and inspiring the next generation of agricultural leaders.
The “Egg Crack, Give Back” promotion coincides with “Give FFA Day,” a 24-hour fundraising campaign held during National FFA Week. National FFA Week helps spread awareness about what FFA is, how it impacts the education of high school students across the country, and ultimately prepares them for careers in the science, business and technology of agriculture. Give FFA Day is Thursday, February 25, 2021 and its purpose is to encourage people to donate to the FFA to help support the student members and their local chapters.
“At Bob Evans, nourishing our communities is at the heart of what we do every day — whether that’s through providing farm-fresh food to our guests or supporting the next generation of farmers who will soon be at the heart of our food system,” said Saed Mohseni, chief executive officer for Bob Evans Restaurants. “The SAE grant program gives future agricultural leaders incredible experiences that will propel them to the next stage of their development and training. We all stand to benefit from supporting the next generation of farmers who will help ensure the integrity of what’s on your plate, whether you’re cooking at home or dining with us.”
