Cooper Farms donates thousands of eggs

LIMA — Cooper Farms of Fort Recovery is one of more than 20 farms participating in the initiative Fighting Hunger by the Dozens, which will provide 3 million eggs to food insecure individuals and families.

Cooper Farms’ donation of 54,000 eggs will provide local residents with thousands of meals. In total, 250,000 dozen eggs will be donated by egg farmers across the country this spring – one of the largest total egg donations in history.

“Eggs are a complete protein and provide great nutritional value,” said Gary Cooper, chief operating officer of Cooper Farms. “Easter and Passover mark special occasions for families to gather around the table and we are hopeful that our donation will provide a helpful meal solution for many in our community.”
