We all know Culver’s supports agriculture (see example their #farmingfridays initiative, raised money for FFA, and donated 1.8 million dollars to ag education). In addition to supporting agriculture and education, they support farmers. What started off as a family business in 1984 with agriculture in its roots, has now sky rocketed and took over the fast-food industry. Starting Oct. 22, guest are encouraged to nominate a Wisconsin dairy farmer to receive a care package from Culver’s.
The reason for the care package is to support Wisconsin dairy farmers. For dairy farmers across the country, this has been a tough year. In Wisconsin alone, 497 dairies have called it quiets just this year according to Wisconsin Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection..
As a sign of support to the farmers, the fast food chain is reaching out to show their appreciation. Culver’s hope to give out at least 500 care packages at this time. All you have to do is go to their website and nominate a Wisconsin dairy farmer. Within two weeks of the nomination, Culver’s will send out the care packages that includes coupons and certificates to their restaurant for the farmers, their families, and employees.
Culver’s is starting this initiative in their own backyard of Wisconsin. According to their website, “While we love and appreciate dairy farmers everywhere, our first step toward showing our support is to focus on Wisconsin dairy farmers.” Culver’s show once again that through tough times, we can still help out one another.
