Hickman Family Farms from Buckeye, Arizona will deliver 58,968 eggs (4,914 dozen) to the Community Food Bank on Monday, March 22, 2010 at 10:00 AM.  The eggs will be delivered to the Food Bank at 3003 S. Country Club Road in Tucson.  Joy Tucker, Community Food Bank Senior Vice President for Facilities Management will be on hand to accept delivery from Hickman Family Farms and their mascot “Funky Chicken.”

The Hickman egg donation will be distributed to the Child Nutrition Program, the Rural TEFAP food box program in Graham, Greenlee, Cochise and Santa Cruz Counties and through the Agency Market Program in Pima County.

“The Community Food Bank once again is grateful for the generous donation of eggs that Hickman Family Farms has provided,” said Tucker.  “Eggs are a source of high quality protein which will greatly benefit the nutritional needs of low income children and families in Southeastern Arizona.”

Photo and interview opportunities will be available following the unloading of the 58,968 eggs.

The Hickman Family Farm egg donations are being coordinated statewide by the Association of Arizona Food Banks.
