Ohio's farm families are committed to providing a safe, affordable and nutritious food supply. Additionally, they contribute to their local communities and the state's economy.
Ohio's egg, chicken and turkey farmers are active members of their local communities and volunteer their time to church and civic groups, schools and political activities.
In addition to the many food contributions made on the local level, Ohio's egg farmers participate in the Ohio Agricultural Clearance Program, a statewide program to direct Ohio agricultural products to low income families via the network of Ohio's Second Harvest Foodbanks. Since 2005, more than three million eggs have been provided to 12 food banks throughout Ohio.
