FORT WAYNE, Ind. (Indiana’s NewsCenter) - The high gas prices are hard on all of us, but especially for people who struggle to put food on the table.

One of the most-needed items from food banks is protein.

Wednesday morning, egg farmers from the Hoosier state donated more than 9,000 dozen eggs to the Community Harvest Food Bank.

The timing coincides with the approaching Easter holiday, and is designed to help families who struggle with food insecurity.

Claudia Johnson with the Community Harvest Food Bank says, “It is so welcome. Great, fresh protein for our clients. It's Wednesday, it'll be gone Monday."

The food bank says one in eight Americans will receive food help this year, with more than 90,000 people receiving emergency food from Community Harvest.
