Thank You, Farmers: Culver’s gives back to farm families through new partnership

Culver’s of Wabash has partnered with Northfield and Southwood high schools as part of a larger, nationwide effort by Culver’s and its guests to thank the family farmers on which the restaurants depend on by donating 10 percent of its sales from Sept. 24, 5-8 p.m. to the schools’ FFA. The Thank You, Farmers partnership in participating restaurants all over the U.S., was unveiled in July to help spread awareness and generate support for this nation’s hardworking farmers.

“Culver’s restaurant as a whole have depended on family farms since the first restaurant opened in 1984,” said Jeremy and Dawn Waymen of Culver’s in Wabash. “We want to show our gratitude by helping support the next generation of farmers.”

The Northfield and Southwood high schools help 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 Wabash takes pride in being an active member of the community by supporting local charities and organizations since 2008.

“Culver’s is proud to call the diary land of Wisconsin home,” said Craig Culver, CEO and 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.”
