A special thanks to all the individuals, schools, and groups that helped spread some love to their hungry neighbors across the Region by hosting a peanut butter drive this past February.

Why peanut butter?

The Food Bank distributes nearly 100,000 jars of peanut butter through the year! Packed with protein, peanut butter can give children, adults, and seniors struggling with hunger the energy they need to get through the day. It can also be kept for longer periods of time without spoiling, making it a great product for our partner food pantries.

How can you help?

A peanut butter drive can be a fun and meaningful way to engage students in the fight against hunger in their own communities. By collecting peanut butter, kids can learn about the issue of hunger while making a real difference in the lives of others.


It doesn’t have to be February to spread some love to your neighbors in need.  Gather your friends, family, classmates, and coworkers and sign up to host a food drive today!
