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 eggceptional reach online and has proven a cracking business for the young entrepreneur.

The Carine 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 but yokingly (jokingly) would not divulge how many customers he had.

“It varies each fortnight, but a good business man 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.

“My eggs are only two to three days old when I deliver them; we ensure that every delivery we collect the eggs direct off the truck and deliver them to my customers’ door the same day,” he said.

“My eggs have a five to six-week shelf life unlike the shop’s eggs that are already a couple of weeks old.”

As the son of West Coast Eagle premiership player Dwayne Lamb, Levi wants to eventually follow in his father’s footsteps but his focus for now is on his “eggcellent” business.
