Colorado children enjoy egg-cellent omelets courtesy of CEP.
For many Americans, Thanksgiving is a time to gather with family and friends around a delicious meal and celebrate the many blessings the past year has brought. Thanksgiving also marks the season of giving, a time to serve those less fortunate in our communities. With many of us giving thanks for another great year, the Colorado Egg Producers (CEP) Association encourages everyone to help those that may not have a Thanksgiving meal this year.
According to Feeding America, around 6.2 million households across the United States received aid from food banks in 2012. 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.
