“Farmer donate 65,000 eggs to food band.” Indianapolis Star. Indianapolis Star/Associated Press. March 29, 2010. A Bloomington food bank has received a donation of about 65,000 eggs as part of a national push to assist people struggling with poverty. Some of Indiana’s egg farmers donated 5,400 cartons containing 64,800 Grade A, extra-large eggs earlier this month to the Hoosier Hills Food Bank. Since then, more than half of the eggs have been snapped up by families in need.
