Now that school is out, most kids are having fun and enjoying outdoor activities – such as playing sports, riding bikes and visiting the beach.
Unfortunately, summer is also the time that one in every five U.S. children will wonder where their next meal will come from. Why? With no school nutrition programs to rely on during summer break, many households struggle to put food on the table. As a result, American egg farmers, as part of the “Good Egg Project,” have teamed up with Share Our Strength’s “No Kid Hungry” initiative to encourage all of us to help fight childhood hunger so all children in America have access to the food they need every day.
American egg farmers have donated a whopping 48 million+ eggs to local food banks across the country since starting this annual donation program in 2009.
You can help! Please join these egg farmers and take the Good Egg Project Pledge at www.incredibleegg.org/good-egg-project. For every pledge made, America’s egg farmers will donate one egg to local food banks to help alleviate childhood hunger. Pledging is easy, simply provide your name, email and zip code, and “sign” the pledge by checking the box. You can also visit www.nokidhungry.org to learn about more ways you can help.
