$20,000 a year more for eggs
Cage-free organic Pete & Gerry's eggs will be on the tables at Harvard University dining halls from now on, after protests about the cruelty of battery-cage eggs from students and faculty. The move will cost the university about $20,000 more a year.
We're big fans of Pete & Gerry eggs, which come from Monroe, N.H., and are already served at Dartmouth College. This will give their business a big boost, since other local institutions will surely follow suit. We wrote about them in the Food section last month.
Recently, Burger King announced that it would begin using cage-free eggs in its chain (the eggs will amount to about 2% of their egg business, but that's a huge amount).
Now, hopefully, everyone will learn how not to overcook them.
