DENVER – November 2013 – For many Americans Thanksgiving is a time to gather with friends and family around a delicious meal to celebrate all that the past year has provided. Whether you look forward to spending quality time with family, cheering on your favorite football team or enjoying a home-cooked meal, there are many reasons to celebrate Thanksgiving. This time of year, the Colorado Egg Producers (CEP) Association encourages everyone to take a moment to be thankful and think about ways to help others who are less fortunate.
According to Feeding America, around 6.2 million households across the United States received aid from food banks in 2012. Coloradans were hit especially hard this year due to the damage caused by this summer’s wildfires and floods. The Food Bank of the Rockies reports that one in seven Coloradans worry about where they will find food next and sadly, nearly half are children.
