Local food bank gets a quarter-million eggs
WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — It was an “egg-cellent” day for the Food Bank of Central and Eastern North Carolina at Wilmington. North Carolina’s Commercial Egg Farmers gave more than a quarter million eggs to the organization.
The eggs were taken off the truck and sorted by the “egg-crew.” The donation is part of the Good Egg Project which helps encourage people to eat well.
“We have a responsibility as being food providers. We know that not everyone has the ability sometimes to put food on their table,” said John Brinn of Rose Acre Farms. “It’s what we feel is necessary. It’s what we’re here for, and we enjoy doing it whenever we have the opportunity.”
Organizers say each participating farmer donated 60,000 eggs each.
