Our farmers believe that it’s important to give back to the community they call home. Many of our over 1,000 egg farmers and egg farming families donate their time and money to various causes and charities across Canada.
In October 2017, Egg Farmers of Alberta was joined by Food Banks Alberta to present a $30,000 cheque at the Airdrie Food Bank. This generous donation will enable Alberta Food Banks to order more than 12,000 dozen eggs for their network of food banks across the province and help to feed those in need.
“We have not had to purchase eggs in two years due to the generosity of these partners. Each hamper that is given contains eggs for that family. This healthy addition helps us reach our goal of providing fresh nutritious food to those we serve,” said Lori MicRitchie, Executive Director of the Airdire Food Bank.
