Chickens Offer Eggceptional Gift to Colorado Food Banks

WHAT:
The Colorado Egg Producers will be donating 194,000 eggs to the Food Bank of the Rockies in Denver.

A total of more than 300,000 eggs will be donated to three food banks in Denver, Greeley and Grand Junction over several days.

Of the families Food Bank of the Rockies serves, 77 percent have incomes below the Federal Poverty Level and 48 percent have had to choose between buying food and paying for their rent or mortgage.

For the second year in a row, the Colorado Egg Producers and Feeding America are teaming up to help the more than 600,000 people who are at risk of hunger in Colorado.

Free omelets will be served to all those in attendance.
