For many people, Thanksgiving represents a time to celebrate and reflect on the blessings we have to be grateful for while enjoying delicious food in the company of family and friends. For some though, Thanksgiving is another day spent worrying about where their next meal will come from. This holiday season, Colorado egg farmers are committed to helping Coloradans in need through egg donations to Feeding Colorado food banks. The Colorado Egg Producers (CEP) Association encourages you to join in the fight against hunger in our state.
According to Feeding America, one in eight Americans struggle with hunger. Across the United States, that equates to 48.1 million people including 13.1 million children. The most recent data shows that one in seven Coloradans worry about where they will find food for their next meal and sadly, nearly half are children, according to the Food Bank of the Rockies.
