HATCH extends food bank egg program
GREENFIELD — HATCH, a partnership among Elanco, The Kroger Co. and Rose Acre Farms, provided more than 100,000 eggs to more than 8,000 families in Indiana during its 10-week pilot program.
Officials announced last week the program would continue through 2015.
The pilot program involved 65 central Indiana Kroger stores and provided one egg to a local food bank for each dozen Kroger brand medium eggs purchased from April 13 through June 20. The donated eggs were given to Gleaners Food Bank and Midwest Food Bank.
Eggs are an excellent source of protein and essential vitamins and minerals, making them especially important in the fight against hunger, officials said.
Elanco plans to build on the HATCH pilot program to develop similar initiatives that can bring food security to other locations across the country.
