City Council is again supporting the North Texas Food Bank's (NTFB) Spread Hope Peanut Butter Drive. With September being hunger awareness month, Mayor Harry LaRosiliere and the City are working with our partner agency NTFB to collect jars of peanut butter. The program is called Stronger Lives, Stronger Community (formerly called Food 4 Kids – Plano) and with 1 out of 5 children in Collin County deemed “food insecure,” its focus is the fight against hunger.
Your peanut butter will help replenish the North Texas Food Bank warehouse with ready to eat food at a critical time as the food bank responds to Hurricane Harvey. Donations will be provided to evacuees and local families who may be housing displaced family/friends. #hurricaneharveyrelief #spreadthehopeplano
Take your donations to the box in the Municipal Center lobby near the Action Center. Additional drop sites include Davis Library (7507-B Independence Pkwy.) and Tom Muehlenbeck Recreation Center (5801 W. Parker Road).
Plastic, regular-sized peanut butter jars will be accepted through September 30. Plano’s goal is to collect 30,000 pounds of peanut butter this year.
Please help if you can! Visit the North Texas Food Bank or email Katharine Weaver if you have questions.
