Burnbrae Farms has donated more than 3.6 million eggs to over 30 food banks across the country. The donation is a response to the COVID-19 pandemic and part of the crisis relief program the company established to support Canadian families in need.
Burnbrae Farms also donated a total of $55,000 to hospitals in the communities where it does business to assist with ongoing purchases of personal protective equipment (PPE) for hospital staff and frontline workers during the crisis.
"From the outset of the crisis, we took our role as an essential service very seriously. We worked hard to keep our employees safe and to keep supplying Canadian families with nutritious, affordable eggs. We wanted to do more to support those in need as well as the health care workers risking their lives to keep us safe, and we are very proud of our pandemic relief program," says Margaret Hudson, president, Burnbrae Farms.
