From COVID-19, to inflation, to Climate Change impact and food supply disruption, this year is closing on a challenging note for folks and families who face food-insecurity.
Starting November 30th until December 11th, follow us at @QuestFoodExchange and be part of #12DaysofQuest as we move through 12 food groups we’re hoping to secure, month-to-month, across Quest grocery markets in 2022. Today’s feature food is:
Simply put, eggs rock! They are an easy, delicious, and affordable way to meet your daily protein needs. Two large eggs contains 13 grams of protein. That’s almost 1/3 of your required daily protein. They’re each individually packed with vitamins A, B and D and contain healthy doses of minerals we require like zinc and iron. That’s why Quest loves eggs!
The Quest Difference
Eggs are a major staple in the daily lives of Quest clients. With BC farms impacted by devastating floods in November, we know egg production is going to be all the more challenged and communities facing economic barriers are more likely to lose access to hard-to-come by products when this happens.
These days, a dozen eggs goes for anywhere between $3.67 and $4.84. At Quest, eggs are $2.75 a dozen. We keep our prices extra low because we know our client communities count every penny.
Help ensure Quest Clients have access to eggs and other critical grocery items 12 months of the year. Donate to Quest today! And stay tuned for Day 2 of #12DaysofQuest when we share mooooooooo-re about the staple grocery items our communities have come to depend on.
