Dunkin’ Donuts and America’s Egg Farmers will donate one egg to Feeding America for every Eggs Benedict Breakfast Sandwich sold March 3 through March 9
Dunkin’ Donuts, America’s all-day, everyday stop for coffee and baked goods, is bringing a brunch favorite to its guests in a brand new way, unveiling the Eggs Benedict Breakfast Sandwich. Offering a traditional sit-down breakfast and brunch classic served on-the-go, Dunkin’ Donuts’ Eggs Benedict Breakfast Sandwich features an egg, Black Forest ham and creamy Hollandaise flavored spread on an oven-toasted English Muffin. The Eggs Benedict Breakfast Sandwich is available all day at participating Dunkin’ Donuts restaurants nationwide for a limited time.
During the first week of March (March 3 – 9), sales of Dunkin’ Donuts’ new Eggs Benedict Breakfast Sandwich will help make a difference in the fight to solve hunger across America. Dunkin’ Donuts and America’s Egg Farmers have partnered to donate one egg to Feeding America for every Eggs Benedict Breakfast Sandwich sold (up to 750,000) between today and March 9. The eggs will be delivered to select local Feeding America member food banks throughout the country this Spring. The Dunkin’ Donuts & Baskin-Robbins Community Foundation has partnered with Feeding America since 2007 and has donated more than $1 million over the last five years to support Feeding America and its local food banks.
“Dunkin’ Donuts is committed to exploring new menu choices and differentiating our brand with innovative twists on familiar, favorite flavors. Our new Eggs Benedict Breakfast Sandwich is a perfect example of how we are able to put a unique spin on a classic dish to deliver an exciting new option for our busy, on-the-go guests,” said John Costello, Dunkin’ Brands’ President, Global Marketing and Innovation. “We are especially proud to partner with America’s Egg Farmers for this particular launch, and we hope people will help us support Feeding America’s efforts to solve hunger by trying the new Eggs Benedict Breakfast Sandwich through March 9.”
Feeding America is the nation’s leading domestic hunger-relief charity, with more than 200 member food banks serving all 50 states, the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico. Feeding America’s food banks secure and distribute 3 billion pounds of donated food and grocery products annually through a network of approximately 61,000 food assistance agencies, such as food pantries, soup kitchens, emergency shelters and after-school programs. Thirty-seven million Americans receive food and groceries from Feeding America each year, including nearly 14 million children and 3 million senior citizens, and approximately 5.7 million Americans are fed by the Feeding America network every week.
