HATCH launched to provide eggs

GREENFIELD — Elanco, the central division of the Kroger Co., Rose Acre Farms, Gleaners Food Bank and Midwest Food Bank, recently introduced a new partnership to fight hunger in Central Indiana.

Called HATCH, the program was developed by Elanco. The first project will provide eggs to local food banks. For each dozen medium eggs purchased at Kroger through June 20, the company will donate one egg to Gleaners or Midwest. 

A single egg is able to provide almost half the protein and all the iron a young child needs in one day, according to a news release.

Eggs, however, are usually in short supply at food banks.

The program aims to get eggs to Hoosier families that need them.

Elanco President Jeff Simmons said Elanco is happy to participate in the initiative.

“Although it is just getting started, HATCH is an excellent example of how citizens and businesses can collaborate to make a vital difference in local communities,” he said. “Fighting hunger and undernourishment through sustainable, local partnerships is a priority for Elanco.”
