Join us in the annual Peanut Butter Drive!

The Peanut Butter Drive is back and this year the goal is 500,000 pounds of peanut butter or dollars to purchase peanut butter. To achieve this goal, we're welcoming participants and cities in all 13 counties in NTFB's service area.

 

For those unaware, the annual Peanut Butter Drive began in Plano in 2014 as a way for the community to get involved while raising awareness of child hunger in North Texas.

Each September during Hunger Action Month, cities, companies, organizations, schools, and faith-based organizations come together to collect peanut butter to distribute through NTFB feeding programs like Comida 4 Niños, the school backpack program that feeds up to 11,000 chronically hungry kids each week.

In recent years, we have included a virtual option so participants can make a simple donation or they can set up their own virtual peanut butter drive and share with friends, family, and colleagues.

Stay tuned for the launch of our Virtual Peanut Butter Drive later this month.
