Wilcox Family Farms is a fourth-generation, family-run farm headquartered in Roy, WA, near the foothills of Mt Rainier. Wilcox Farms is pleased to be able to partner with the Emergency Food Network (EFN) by donating over 10,000 dozen eggs to provide food to families in need. The Wilcox family has partnered with multiple non-profit and local organizations over the years to give back to the community that has supported them for over 100 years.
“Wilcox Family Farms is proud to be partnering with the Emergency Food Network to provide for the most needy in our community, especially during the Easter holiday season,” said Wendi Shaw, Director of Sales and Marketing at Wilcox Farms.
Last year, the Emergency Food Network distributed over $18 million worth of food to families in Washington. The EFN distributes to 65 food banks and hot meal sites in Pierce County.
In addition to donating eggs, Wilcox Farms also holds three annual community events at the Farm: an Easter event (April 16), June Jubilee (June 25), and Harvest ‘Fest (Oct. 1). Each free event includes tours of the farm, omelets, and fun activities for kids.
This year's Easter event brought over 2,000 people and 9,000 Easter eggs to the farm. The hunt for those eggs lasted less than a minute.
