Culver’s thanks farmers, California’s travel ban, crying wolf, robot dentist
Culver’s restaurants will have their annual fundraiser for the company’s Thank You Farmers Project on Thursday, May 4.
For a $1 donation that day, customers will get a scoop of the famed frozen custard made by Culver’s. And on May 4, for one day only, a special custard called How Now Brown Cow will be available.
How Now Brown Cow is made with Culver’s frozen chocolate custard, infused with the company’s root beer and swirled with chopped Dove bars and chocolate cake pieces. Vanilla and chocolate custards will also be available for the $1 donation.
This is the company’s ninth year for the event, says company spokesman Eric Skrum. The company has raised $4 million for the Thank You Farmers Project. That project has helped fund FFA, which trains students to be future agricultural leaders.
In recent years the Wisconsin-based Culver’s has expanded to Florida, Colorado and Arizona, but the company remains a gem of the Midwest.
