Colorado egg farmers understand that they must humanely produce a high quality, safe protein while being stewards to their environment and community. In fact, every week Colorado farmers donate 1,000’s of eggs to area Feeding America affiliated food banks and community homeless shelters. CEP members graciously donate more than one million fresh eggs to local charities annually.
In November 2009, Colorado Egg Producers hosted the first Good Egg Project sponsored by the American Egg Board. This event included the donation of over 100,000 eggs and providing breakfast to more than 600 families at Food Bank of the Rockies in Denver and Greeley’s Weld Food Bank. For more information on how you can participate in the Good Egg Project and take the pledge to “Eat Good. Do Good Every Day” visit www.goodeggproject.org.
In 2014, Colorado Egg Producers donated an estimated one million eggs to Colorado food banks to help fight hunger in our state. Watch the video below to learn more.
