Iowa’s egg producers partner with grocery chain to donate eggs for the holidays.

According to the Associated Press, the Iowa Egg Council and Fareway Stores say they will give a dozen eggs to the Food Bank of Iowa for every two-dozen bought by each customer at all Fareway stores in Iowa. The promotion will donate up to 21,600 dozen eggs to the food bank.

The council says the campaign aims to give back to individuals who are food insecure in the communities Iowa egg farmers live and serve.

The campaign runs through Saturday.
