Mississippi farmers to donate thousands of eggs

Posted: Updated:

Jackson, Miss. (WLBT) - Mississippi egg farmers will donate 144,000 eggs Tuesday morning to the Mississippi Food Network.

The 144,000 eggs is the equivalent of 12,000 egg cartons that hold a dozen eggs each.

The donation comes at a time when Mississippi has a 17% food insecurity rate.

Egg farmers nationwide will donate more than 12 million eggs to help make sure America's food banks are well stocked just in time for Easter.
