According to the Deseret Morning News, the effort is part of a pre-Easter push to get 12 million eggs to the needy nationwide. Between now and Easter, March 23, the Utah Food Bank will receive 235,000 more eggs.

"Eggs are highly nutritious and high protein," said Utah Food Bank development director Janael Ford. "They really are a highly sought-after item."

Several Utah farmers regularly donate eggs, but they decided to work together to make this large donation based on the results of a 2007 Utah hunger survey that found a need for nutritious, high-protein foods in the state.
