Show Appreciation for Teachers with Random Acts of Ice Cream

Posted: Thursday, October 1, 2020 by: Jamie Bigelow | Category: Community Interest

School looks a little different this year, and to show gratitude for the educators and support staff who are teaching our nation’s youth while navigating these new challenges, Midwest-made Hudsonville Ice Cream is seeking nominations for its Random Acts of Ice Cream program. Selected nominees will receive a box full of ice cream pints delivered directly to their doorstep.

Nominations for Random Acts of Ice Cream can be submitted at, and Hudsonville plans to ship boxes out to a number of selected recipients each week. Nominators can share why the teacher or other education professional (including cafeteria workers, librarians, bus drivers and more) should receive a special ice cream delivery during this unusual year. Then, Hudsonville Ice Cream will send a box of their classic pint flavors to selected nominees, no purchase required.

“The intent of our Random Acts of Ice Cream program is to show gratitude and bring joy to someone’s day, and with the new school year starting we wanted to acknowledge the dedication of teachers and other education staff,” said Rachel Messingschlager of Hudsonville Ice Cream. “We all have teachers and educational role models to thank for shaping our lives, and this year educators are going above and beyond to ensure our children can learn and grow, whether it’s virtually or in the classroom. Sending a box of ice cream is something small we can do to help make their days a little sweeter while they are doing so much to inspire the next generation.” 

Random Acts of Ice Cream returned earlier this year to recognize healthcare heroes and other frontline workers. To date, Hudsonville has shipped hundreds of boxes to more than 20 states. The family-owned company chose to recognize teachers and support staff aligned with the start of the school year and will continue the program through 2020.

Hudsonville Ice Cream makes more than 50 flavors, with both traditional ice cream and dairy-free options available in scoop shops and grocery stores in more than a dozen states. Hudsonville Ice Cream is made with the highest-quality milk and cream locally sourced from neighboring dairy farmers, some within 10 miles of the creamery’s headquarters. Though the creamery boasts an evolving flavor list, Hudsonville Ice Cream continues to utilize the same base recipe from more than 90 years ago.
