EGG DONATION: Food Bank Gets Easter Gift | Community Spirit
Easter is around the corner and that means eggs. 64,000 of them.
That’s how many Wright County based Centrum Valley Farms donated to the Food Bank of Iowa in Des Moines, Wednesday.
The contribution will some go some way in helping the 408,280 people in Iowa that live below the poverty line.
It’s the sixth year egg United Egg Producers have rallied over the Easter holidays and are set to donate over 9 million eggs nationwide.
Eggs are especially handy for food banks due to their dense nutritional, high protein content and long shelf life.
