September Peanut Butter Drive
Every September during Hunger Action Month, the North Texas Food Bank creates awareness about food insecurity and hosts the Peanut Butter Drive which collects a shelf-stable, kid-friendly protein for our hungry neighbors. The goal for the 2021 drive is 300,000 lbs. of peanut butter.
**Along with peanut butter, other nut butters including almond, cashew, hazelnut, sunflower seed, and soy are accepted.**
Lets help meet the goal by collecting regular-sized (16 oz.), PLASTIC jars of peanut butter to help feed hungry children and their families.
If you are able to donate, please send peanut butter jars with your student between September 8th- 30th.
You can also purchase the peanut butter from our Amazon Wish List!
