Ohio egg farmers who are participating in the contribution include: Trillium Farms of Croton; Ft. Recovery Equity of Fort Recovery; Hemmelgarn & Sons, Inc. of Coldwater; Stoller Farms of Van Wert; Hertzfeld Poultry Farms of Grand Rapids; Weaver Brothers, Inc. of Versailles; Rindler Poultry of St. Henry; and Ross-Medford Farms of New Weston.

The Ohio contribution complements a national initiative by the United Egg Producers and Feeding America. Nine million eggs will be donated to food banks across the country from farmers nationwide.
