Farmer Boys, the Southern California-based fast casual concept known for its award-winning burgers and exceptional service, has announced two initiatives that will help feed healthcare workers in Farmer Boys’ communities and provide meals to those in need through Feeding America.

Farmer Boys has introduced a limited-edition t-shirt with the slogan “Do Good. Be Well. Be a Farmer.” available for purchase through the Farmer Boys website.

All proceeds from the t-shirt sales will be donated to Feeding America to support their efforts in helping those facing hunger and food insecurity during these uncertain times.

For every Big Cheese purchased at participating Farmer Boys restaurants between May 11-17, they will match burger-for-burger and donate Big Cheeses to local hospital workers working on the front lines.

In addition to the two new initiatives, the restaurant is offering financial support to their corporate-owned restaurant team members via a $200,000 Farmer Boys Hardship Fund, which was established in March when COVID-19 first began affecting hospitality workers. Farmer Boys’ senior corporate executive team is contributing to the fund, and all restaurant support team members are invited to contribute at their discretion.

All restaurants in California and Nevada are open for phone-ahead ordering and carryout, while select locations are also continuing to serve Farmer Boys fans via drive-thru and third-party delivery.

Customers can visit Farmer Boys’ VIF (Very Important Farmer) app, available to download in the Apple app store and on Google Play, for location-specific information on how to order & pick up your food.
