Egg Farmers of NS Donate a Year’s Supply of Eggs to Brigadoon
If you ask one of Brigadoon’s campers what their favourite activity is, there is a good chance the answer will be cooking. And thanks to a significant donation from the Egg Farmers of Nova Scotia the cost of eggs for programs like this are one less thing Brigadoon Village needs to worry about.
The Egg Farmers of Nova Scotia recently committed to supplying all the eggs the Village needs for a year, plus a cash donation of $3,000 to go towards healthy food programming.
“With over 800 kids attending Brigadoon Village’s camps this summer and even more through the fall and winter, you can imagine how many eggs are used over the course of the year,” says Executive Director David Graham. “This donation from the Egg Farmers of Nova Scotia is unique and incredibly valuable to us. Every dollar, or egg in this case, that is donated gives more opportunities for extraordinary kids to visit Brigadoon Village.”
“Supporting local communities is important, and supporting Brigadoon Village is a great way to give back,” says Jeff Clarke, Chair, Egg Farmers of Nova Scotia. “I am so pleased that we were able to donate to the camp for a second consecutive year to help support their healthy eating program and educate the kids about cooking and eating eggs. It is a feel-good event, and one we are proud to be a part of.”
The Egg Farmers of Nova Scotia joined this week’s Brigadoon campers to help lead their cooking adventure. “So many of our campers have dietary restrictions, but through our cooking program they learn how to prepare their own meals that meet their needs and of course, taste good!” said Graham.
Brigadoon Village will welcome 800 kids this summer for camp, and several hundred more for camps and programs through the fall, winter, and spring.
