Mich. Farmers Send Half Million Eggs To Haiti

Posted: Updated:

Eight family-owned Michigan egg farmers have donated 576,000 eggs to feed victims of last month's earthquake in Haiti. The contributions are part of the national Good Egg Project, which is donating more than 3 million eggs to Feed the Children's Haitian relief efforts, mlive.com reports.

"They will break them and truck the liquid product to Iowa," said Tim Vande Bunte, president of Konos, Inc. The 48,000 pounds of liquid eggs will be dried at a plant there, then flown to Haiti along with enough clean water to allow the eggs to be properly reconstituted , he said.
