Bob Evans Farmhouse Kitchen’s favorite fundraiser is back in its fourth year. The Egg Crack, Give Back — Bob Evans’s annual fundraiser supporting agricultural education and innovation among America’s future farmers — returns on Thursday, February 22, at participating locations.
For every Farmer’s Choice Breakfast ordered that day, Bob Evans will donate $1 to the National FFA Organization, up to $15,000. Funds raised help underwrite Supervised Agricultural Experience Grants that give FFA students hands-on learning opportunities ranging from agricultural internships and entrepreneurship opportunities to research experience.
“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.”
How farm fresh breakfasts support FFA:
The star of the Egg Crack, Give Back fundraiser is the Farmer’s Choice Breakfast. Bob Evans’ signature breakfast is named for 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.
National Give FFA Day
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. Ultimately, the initiative helps to strengthen the backbone for many careers in science, business, and agriculture technology for high school students across America.
