Anonymous donors continue to fund free egg giveaways in Cass County. On Saturday, May 30, egg giveaways are planned for both Anita and Atlantic.
The eggs have been purchased from Southwest Iowa Egg Cooperative in Massena, and will be handed out by members of the Cass County Local Food Policy Council.
Only one person from each household is asked to collect the eggs and masks are appreciated. Eggs will be handed out in flats (30 eggs). The eggs are clean and chilled, but ungraded and unwashed. Eggs are available to anyone who needs them. There is no requirement to prove need. People who may not need eggs themselves are encouraged to consider getting them for a neighbor or friend.
