Opal Foods delivers nearly 290K eggs to Ozarks Food Harvest

Posted online

Neosho-based distributor Opal Foods yesterday delivered a donation of 23,400 dozen eggs to Ozarks Food Harvest.

The 280,800 eggs bring Opal Foods’ total contribution to Ozarks Food Harvest to 2.7 million eggs since 2008, according to a news release.

“Eggs are prized by Ozarks Food Harvest and our member pantries because of their high protein and nutritional value,” said Bart Brown, president and CEO of Ozarks Food Harvest, in the release. “Protein-rich foods are one of our most requested items, so we're grateful for our friends at Opal Foods for helping us feed those in need across the Ozarks.”

A franchisee of Malvern, Pennsylvania-based Eggland’s Best LLC, Opal Foods worked with Neosho’s Huntington Woods Logistics Inc. to transport the eggs to the Springfield nonprofit’s 2810 N. Cedarbrook Ave. headquarters.

At its office, Ozarks Food Harvest is adding a second, $4.8 million warehouse expected to be finished in May or June.

Ozarks Food Harvest provides 16.8 million meals to more than 261,000 individuals per year. It works with 270 organizations in 28 Ozarks counties, according to the release.
