Monday morning, a local food bank received a huge donation in the on-going effort to fight hunger. More than 32,000 California eggs were dropped off at the San Francisco Food Bank.

They were donated by San Jose's Olivera Egg Ranch as part of a national effort by United Egg Producers and Feeding America to provide local food banks with fresh eggs just in time for the Easter holiday, which is a couple of weeks away.

Eggs are a prized item at food banks because of their high protein content.
