America’s egg farmers team up with Denny’s to fight childhood hunger

September 10, 2013

America’s Egg Farmers and Denny’s have partnered to help fight childhood hunger in the United States. Running through Sept. 15, for every “Build Your Own Omelette” purchased from the new limited time #BYOomelette menu, America’s egg farmers will donate one egg on behalf of Denny’s guests to one of Share Our Strength’s No Kid Hungry food distribution partners.

“As America’s Diner, Denny’s is the perfect partner to help in our efforts to provide breakfast to hungry children,” said American Egg Board President & CEO, Joanne C. Ivy. “We encourage everyone to visit their local Denny’s and show their support for this incredibly worthwhile cause.”

Egg farmers have participated in many promotions over the years, often through an egg industry initiative called The Good Egg Project. As part of this program, America’s egg farmers have donated more than 48 million eggs to local food banks since 2009.
