Egg Farmers of Canada are proudly kicking off #CrackingHunger, a fundraising initiative to support the Heart of Africa farm in Swaziland.  It is expanding with the addition of a new egg barn that will feed orphaned children and teach Swazi locals world-class farming practices commonly used throughout Canada.

The new egg barn will be able to provide a sustainable source of high-quality protein as well as 14 important nutrients to thousands of locals.  What better way to feed hungry children than with eggs?  This protein will help with the brain development in infants, and mental concentration as well as muscle development in children.

You can help in #CrackingHunger by making a donation at eggfarmers.ca/heartforafrica and raise awareness by tweeting and sharing the above video and infographic using the #CrackingHunger hashtag.

We’re very lucky to have access to fresh, local and high quality Canadian eggs so it’s important we share this gift with others as much as we possibly can. We can also look to others for inspiration as well, like when it comes to our egg dishes.
