Do you eat eggs? Unless you get your eggs from a hen house in your backyard, chances are your eggs come in an egg carton. One unique way that you can support the food bank is to save your used, clean egg cartons and drop them off at our receiving window.
Here is why you should “upcycle” your egg cartons at UDFB:
Egg cartons help us improve food access for our customers. We receive at least 40 dozen eggs each week from our partner grocery stores, many of which contain just one broken egg while the rest are perfectly fine. With extra empty cartons on hand, volunteers are able to repackage the eggs so they can quickly find their way into someone’s shopping basket.
Thanks for reading, and say hi to me when you bring those empty egg cartons by!
