Shakshouka is a North Africa spicy dish of eggs poached in tomatoes that is often served with flatbread for breakfast.
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.
Egg Farmers of Canada are proud of their partnerships with school breakfast programs and donations of fresh eggs to Food Banks Canada. #CrackingHunger is just one of many ways that Canadian egg farmers give back, both at home and abroad.
