Egg Farmers of Canada will host a 1950's inspired outdoor diner on Sparks Street in Ottawa with Canadian farmers on-hand providing egg sandwiches and raising awareness of the Canadian egg industry with long-time partner, Food Banks Canada.
Celebrity chef, Marc Doiron from Town restaurant, will be cooking sandwiches made from fresh, local, high quality eggs. Ottawans are welcome to drop by any time between 7:00 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. EDT. Special effort is being made to invite elected officials and the media so that egg farmers from across Canada and representatives of Food Banks Canada and Egg Farmers of Canada can discuss the many ways that farmers give back to Canadian communities.
All visitors to the outdoor diner will be encouraged to make a donation Food Banks Canada when receiving their free sandwich and Egg Farmers of Canada will match what is raised and present Food Banks Canada representatives with a cheque at 11:30 p.m. Photo opportunities and interviews will be available.
