Bob Evans Farmhouse Kitchen to Hold Fourth Annual "Egg Crack, Give Back" Fundraiser Benefitting the Next Generation of American Farmers

$1 from every Farmer’s Choice Breakfast on February 22 supports agricultural education*

New Albany, OH  (RestaurantNews.comBob Evans Farmhouse Kitchen has announced the return of the annual “Egg Crack, Give Back” fundraiser, continuing its tradition, now in its fourth year, of supporting agricultural education for America’s future farmers and gardeners. The fundraiser, which stands as a pillar in Bob Evans’ partnership with the National FFA Organization, will take place on February 22. This year, every Farmer’s Choice Breakfast ordered at participating locations** on February 22 will see $1 donated to the National FFA Organization, up to a total contribution of $15,000*.

The proceeds from the annual fundraiser will help to underwrite the Supervised Agricultural Experience (SAE) Grants that give FFA students from the Midwest first-hand agricultural learning opportunities ranging from internships to entrepreneurship opportunities in their local communities. The “Egg Crack, Give Back” fundraiser, paying homage to founder Bob Evans and his deep roots in the farming community, is an important extension of the partnership between the legacy brand and the National FFA Organization.

“Our annual Egg Crack, Give Back fundraiser is an exciting time for us at Bob Evans,” said Bob Holtcamp, President and CMO for Bob Evans Restaurants. “Coming fresh off the heels of the previous year’s SAE Grant recipient announcement, this fundraiser is the first step we take each year in helping the next generation of American farmers. Between our partnership with the National FFA Organization and the help of our restaurant guests, we take pride in having a hand in shaping the future of the agriculture industry.”

Supporting the Future Farmers of America with a Farm Fresh Breakfast:

The star of the “Egg Crack, Give Back” fundraiser is the Farmer’s Choice Breakfast. Bob Evans’ signature breakfast is named for hardworking American farmers just like the brand’s founder, Bob Evans. The dish, which proudly supports the efforts of the National FFA, features a mix of breakfast favorites, including:

  • A choice of buttermilk hotcakes or brioche French toast
  • Two farm fresh eggs, cooked-to-order
  • A choice of hash browns, home fries or fresh-cut fruit
  • A choice of farm-famous breakfast meat

All varieties of the Farmer’s Choice Breakfast, such as The Double Meat Farmer, Homestead Farmer and Banana Berry Farmer, also qualify for the fundraising event.

The “Egg Crack, Give Back” promotion also coincides with “Give FFA Day” on February 22, a 24-hour fundraising campaign held during National FFA Week (February 17-24, 2024). This weeklong event helps to spread awareness about the mission of the National FFA Organization and its importance to the future of our local economy.
