Local breakfast restaurant Over Easy teamed up with Shamrock Farms in April to raise funds (and eggs) for United Food Bank for the third annual Dollars for a Dozen fundraiser.
Throughout the month of April, when dining at any of the 11 Over Easy locations throughout Arizona, guests had the opportunity to donate $1 or more to United Food Bank, according to a press release. Over Easy then matched every donation dollar for dollar for $14,692.
In addition, every dollar raised contributed to a dozen eggs delivered to United Food Bank by Shamrock Farms.
“We are passionate about the work United Food Bank does in the East Valley and Eastern Arizona and are grateful to be able to work side by side with them for a third year,” Brian Terpay, COO of Over Easy, said in the release.
“We understand that eggs are in such high demand this year but the nutritional and protein value they provide can go a long way,” said Grace Astor, director of corporate relations/community engagement at United Food Bank. “We are thankful for the entire community, and the teams at Over Easy and Shamrock Farms for their assistance in helping us end hunger insecurity across Arizona.”
