Community

We care for our community as much as our hens.

It’s our priority at Dixie Egg Company to help enrich the communities where we live and work. As part of our longstanding corporate objective, it’s our priority to contribute to a wide range of charitable programs and events.

Some highlights of the programs and organizations Dixie Egg Company supports are:

Good Egg Project

Dixie Egg Company is a proud supporter of the Good Egg Project, a commitment by America’s egg farmers to help alleviate childhood hunger. Our nation’s charities and food banks continually need fresh supplies to help feed the millions of Americans who live in food-insecure households. With the help of Dixie Egg Company, the Good Egg Project has donated over 28 million eggs since 2009.

You too can be part of the solution. Visit www.GoodEggProject.org today and pledge your support. For every pledge made, the participating farmers will donate one egg to the project, up to 1 million eggs!

Giving Back to the Community

Dixie Egg Company donated over a million eggs to the Second Harvest Food Bank, now called Nourishment Network. Eggs are a great source of protein and something food banks normally run low on. The non-profit organization distributes food and grocery products to those in need and educates the public about the causes and possible solutions of domestic hunger.

Florida School for the Deaf and Blind

Each year since 1998 Dixie Egg Company has been sponsoring the annual manatee snorkeling trip for a class at the Florida School for the Deaf and Blind. Students are able to don wetsuits and actually swim with the abundance of manatees in the clear waters of Crystal River, Fla., have lunch at a nearby park and learn about the friendly mammal and its habitat.

JT Townsend Foundation

In September of 2014 Dixie Egg Company made a substantial contribution to the JT Townsend Foundation, covering all current needs for equipment requests. The foundation helps children and adults living with disabilities on Florida’s First Coast by providing adaptive equipment and comprehensive financial assistance. Recipients are provided medically approved equipment (like wheelchair ramps, standers, cruisers and special helmets) which makes day-to-day living easier. With the help of Dixie Egg Company, recipients and their families are without the financial burden of expensive insurance co-pays and are living a better quality of life. Learn more.
