An annual egg donation to Ozarks Food Harvest Inc. will help feed families in need in time for the Easter holiday.
Neosho-based distributor Opal Foods yesterday delivered 240,000 eggs, equating to more than 20,000 dozen, to the Springfield nonprofit, according to a news release.
“Opal Foods' egg donation comes at a perfect time as folks in our community continue to face increased prices for groceries,” said Bart Brown, president and CEO of Ozarks Food Harvest, in the release. “We’re so grateful for their continued partnership to help us provide food to our 270 hunger-relief partners across the Ozarks.”
Opal Foods now has donated more than 4 million eggs to Ozarks Food Harvest since the Easter season egg delivery initiative started in 2008.
The company worked with Neosho-based refrigerated carrier business Certified Express Inc. on the delivery, according to the release.
“The Opal Foods team is proud to celebrate our 14th year of partnering with Ozarks Food Harvest during the Easter season,” said Phillip Hutchinson, controller of Opal Foods, in the release. “We are also happy to be able to supply a nutritious product, packed with protein, to the families of southwest Missouri.”
