Egg Farmers of Canada Doubles Egg Donations across Canada


OTTAWA — Egg Farmers of Canada has contributed roughly 3.5 million fresh eggs to food banks across the country to support their mission to relieve food insecurity.

“Canadian egg farmers have always worked together in support of our communities and Food Banks Canada — with their dedicated team of people and volunteers — plays an essential role in our farmers’ continued support,” says Roger Pelissero, Chair of Egg Farmers of Canada. “We’re aware that these are especially challenging times for so many individuals and families. For this reason, it’s crucial that we remain compassionate and continue to support people the best way we can.” 

“It’s been another tough year for those who struggle with hunger, including our neighbours and friends in all communities in Canada,” says David Armour, interim CEO of Food Banks Canada. “With food-bank use continuing at record levels, it’s more important than ever to come together as a country to find new and innovative ways to provide healthy, nutritious food for those who need it today, while moving the needle on policies that will prevent hunger tomorrow.”
