"We are thrilled to support worthy causes that are aligned with our mission to help others, particularly when we have the means to provide them with great tasting and nutritious Free Range organic eggs," said John Brunnquell, founder and CEO of Egg Innovations and Blue Sky Family Farms.
The first donation of more than 20,000 cartons of organic eggs was delivered to the Greater Chicago Food Depository in late July.
"Nutritious protein like eggs are an important part of a healthy diet, but sometimes our hungry neighbors lack access to this food," said Sheila Creghin, Food Depository vice president of operations. "We're grateful to Blue Sky Family Farms for helping us provide nourishing eggs to hungry men, women and children in our community."
