San Francisco Food Bank ‘Egg-static’ over large egg donation

Today, the San Francisco Food Bank received 88,650 eggs just in time for Easter from NuCal Foods. They were all  sourced locally from a farm in Petaluma, CA.  Fresh eggs are always a prized item for Food Banks due to their dense nutritional and high protein content.  And they’re one of the hardest food categories for food banks to acquire.

The eggs we got were slightly smaller in size than what’s generally considered most desirable by consumers.  But wggs of any size are very popular out at our pantries.  We recently spoke to an unemployed nanny at a pantry in the Bayview who told us that her kids love to eat eggs for breakfast.

This donation of over 7,000 dozen eggs from NuCal will help to feed the 1 in 4 children and 1 in 5 adults at risk of hunger in San Francisco.  They’ve already been sent out to our pantries, including senior centers and community centers serving large families.
