JOPLIN, MO - In the spirit of the Good Egg Project, Americas egg farmers serve FREE breakfast to those affected by the Joplin tornado and donate 54,000 eggs to the Ozarks Food Harvest America’s egg farmers are serving up a FREE, hot egg breakfast to members of the Joplin community affected by the tornado.

The breakfast will take place from 6 a.m. – 8 a.m. and 9 a.m. – 11 a.m., Saturday, Aug. 20 at the Billingsly Student Center at Missouri Southern State University.

In addition to the breakfast, Moark Eggs and America’s egg farmers will be donating 54,000 eggs to the Ozarks Food Harvest, a food bank that has been integral to the relief effort in Joplin.

The donation and breakfast is part of the Good Egg Project, an initiative by America’s egg farmers to educate people about where eggs come from and to encourage Americans to help conquer hunger in the United States.

The breakfast will also feature:

* Chef Jeffrey Saad, host of the Cooking Channel’s “United Tastes of America,” who will demonstrate quick and easy egg recipes;
* The famous Incredible Egg Chair, where attendees can snap their photos; and 
* An area for attendees to sign the pledge to “Eat good. Do good every day."

For every pledge, America’s egg farmers will donate one egg to feeding America.  All Joplin community residents are invited.
