Care and Share Food Bank is giving thanks for an Easter-themed donation from MoArk, LLC, of more than 43,000 eggs!
The egg farmer, MoArk, LLC, gave the large donation to help local residents in need. Stretched out shell to shell (each egg is approximately two and a half inches long), the 43,200 donated eggs equals 1.7 miles of eggs.
“Helping neighboring families in need is of the utmost importance to our industry,” said Craig Willardson, president of MoArk, LLC. “We’re proud to offer our help and support when the community needs it now more than ever."
“Fresh eggs are rich sources of protein and are highly nutritious staples,” said Deborah Tuck, President & CEO of Care and Share Food Bank. “We are very grateful for this generous donation.”
This donation is part of a larger project going on nationwide.
For the third year in a row, United Egg Producers and Feeding America have teamed up to fight hunger. Just in time for Easter, egg farmers across the country will be donating more than 12 million eggs to help make sure America’s food banks are well stocked with protein-packed eggs.
“United Egg Producers’ members are dedicated to helping their local communities,” said Gene Gregory, president of United Egg Producers. “Our hope is that this donation during the Easter holiday makes a significant difference in the lives of many people who live at risk of hunger.”
