DUTCH FARMS DONATES 500,000 EGGS TO FOOD BANKPosted May 07, 2020
Dutch Farms partnered with The Food Bank of Northwest Indiana for the inaugural “Eggstravaganza” on Tuesday, May 5. Together, they provided more than 500,000 eggs to the residents of Northwest Indiana. The event ran from 9 am-5 pm and saw half-mile lines for most of the day. Residents were invited to pick up as many eggs as needed (or that they could carry).
The food bank set up social distancing stations and enacted safety precautions for all. “Dutch Farms presented a meaningful, relevant, and generous solution by offering to donate eggs for anyone who needs them,” said Victor A. Garcia, Food Bank of Northwest Indiana Executive Director.
“Dutch Farms is always happy to share our blessings. Northwest Indiana is our home and we are thrilled to do our part to make sure everyone has the food and resources they need to navigate this difficult time,” said Joel Boomsma, Dutch Farms Senior Vice President.
