Hunger Task Force asking for donations of peanut butter, trying to collect 35,000 jars
WAUWATOSA, Wis. (CBS 58) – If you have a jar of peanut butter, you can help feed local families.
The Hunger Task Force is trying to collect 35,000 jars as part of its annual “Wanted: Peanut Butter” campaign.
The effort will help make sure pantry shelves remain stocked through the season. During the campaign, fire stations in the Milwaukee area will host peanut butter drives for the public to drop off donations.
“Peanut butter, of course, it’s the perfect food. You can eat it for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. It’s packed with nutrition for kids. We serve a ton of kids at Hunger Task Force and peanut butter is just a great part of that healthy diet to help our kids grow healthy and strong,” said Jonathan Hanson with Hunger Task Force.
The peanut butter drive runs through March 2. Meijer stores got the ball rolling with a donation of 3,500 jars of peanut butter.
