Eggs from a Braswell Foods delivery truck were immediately placed in an Inter-Faith Food Shuttle van going to the Catholic Parrish Outreach in Raleigh.

In advance of Easter, Inter-Faith Food Shuttle in Raleigh received a generous donation of 81,900 eggs from egg farmers and Dunkin’ Donuts.

Dunkin’ Donuts teamed up with America’s Egg Farmers’ Good Egg Project to donate one egg to Feeding America food banks for every Eggs Benedict Sandwich sold during the first week of March. The eggs delivered on April 16 were provided by Braswell Foods in Nashville, N.C. Inter-Faith Food Shuttle was one of eight food banks across the country to receive an egg donation.

This is the busiest time of year for egg farmer Trey Braswell. His farm produces about 1.8 million eggs per day. That’s a good thing, according to Jan Kelly, executive director of the N.C. Egg Association, because North Carolinians consume about 2 billion eggs each year.

Braswell Foods has partnered with Inter-Faith Food Shuttle since 1994. The food shuttle serves about 185 organizations in and around the Triangle.
