Levi shows he’s a good egg
WHEN not working on his farm fresh egg delivery business, North Beach 12-year-old Levi Lamb is helping Perth’s homeless.
LEVI Lamb is a teenager with a big heart and an eggcellent idea that has enabled him to help people who are homeless.
The 12-year-old North Beach resident has developed his own farm fresh egg delivery business servicing northern suburb residents on a fortnightly basis.
And in the alternate weeks when Levi doesn’t deliver eggs, he and his customers work together to help people who are homeless by running food drives.
“In the weeks I don’t deliver eggs, we connect with my community and collect cup of soups, mandarins, spaghetti and my eggs, of course, and we give the food to people experiencing homelessness,” he said.
Since hatching the business in January, Levi’s Eggs has gained an exceptional reach online and has proven a cracking business.
The Carine Senior High School student developed the business to get some extra pocket money and started selling fresh eggs to family members before advertising the unique delivery service on Facebook.
Levi’s goal was to make enough money to make the business profitable, which he said he had achieved.
“It varies each fortnight, but a good businessman never counts his chickens before they hatch,” he said.
The omelette lover’s eggs come from a farm in Kalbarri, where a maximum of 1500 hens roam free per hectare.
The eggs are only two to three days old when he delivers them.
Levi Lamb... “My eggs have a five to six-week shelf life, unlike the shop’s eggs that are already a couple of weeks old.”
