Two local “EGG-centric” organizations – Over Easy and Hickman’s Family Farms – are once again teaming up to raise funds and eggs for the United Food Bank. Last year the promotion raised $11,512 and 5,756 dozen eggs! This year’s goal is $20,000 and 10,000 dozen eggs.
United Food Bank has provided hunger relief to people in the East Valley and eastern Arizona since 1983. As a Feeding America member food bank, United Food Bank collects, acquires, stores, and distributes food to 150 partner agencies and programs in five counties.
Throughout April, whenever you dine at one of the 11 Over Easy Arizona restaurant locations, you’ll see a prompt when paying your bill asking if you would like to donate to United Food Bank. When a patron donates, Over Easy will match it dollar for dollar. So, whether you are craving Banana French Toast and Bloody Marys with friends or a Protein Waffle before the gym, you’ll be helping United Food Bank.
For local residents, nearby Over Easy locations can be found at 10637 N. Tatum Boulevard in Phoenix and 11162 N. Frank Lloyd Wright Boulevard, #101, in Scottsdale.
Plus, for each donation, Hickman’s Family Farms will deliver one dozen eggs to United Food Bank. So, for example, if a patron donates a dollar, United Food Bank will receive $2 and a dozen eggs. For 78 years, Hickman’s Family Farms has been supplying fresh, safe, affordable, and responsibly produced fresh eggs and related products.
“We so value our partnership with Over Easy and Hickman’s Family Farms,” says United Food Bank CEO Dave Richins. “Their commitment is so important to helping us feed people throughout our service area of the East Valley and Eastern Arizona.”
