Ontario Egg Program

Proper nutrition is essential to the health of all Ontarians. Ontario eggs are affordable, healthy, and easy to prepare – making them a staple item in all refrigerators. This program ensures all Ontarians are gaining access to healthy, locally produced eggs in partnership with the Egg Farmers of Ontario.

How It Works

A collaborative partnership between OAFB and Egg Farmers of Ontario, the Ontario Egg Program addresses the need for protein in Ontario’s food banks.  For every $50 farmer donation, they can place an extra hen in their barn – providing an additional 25 dozen eggs to the program annually. 

The Egg Farmers of Ontario provide

$250,000
in annual support

100%
of this funding is invested in delivering eggs to families in need

This means

144,000 dozen
eggs get delivered to Ontario’s food banks every year

For every $50 you donate, it adds an extra

25 dozen
eggs to the Ontario Egg program
