U.S. egg farmers donated 74,000 eggs for the 42nd annual White House Easter Egg Roll, which took place on April 22. More than 30,000 consumers attended, sampling eggs, decorating and participating in the traditional Egg Roll.
In a speech during the event, President Trump thanked U.S. egg farmers for donating “thousands and thousands of eggs,” for the event. USDA’s Deputy Secretary Stephen Censky, Under Secretary for Trade Ted McKinney, AMS Administrator Bruce Summers, and Deputy Administrator Jennifer Porter attended and met with egg farmers.
Prior to the event, several egg farmer profiles were featured on incredibleegg.org. and national and regional media covered the Easter Egg Roll and associated events.
