Spread the Hope Collin County Peanut Butter Drive Through September!




There are over 44,000 food insecure children in Collin County alone. Hunger can be a hidden issue in any community. Our cities help to raise awareness surrounding the issue of food insecurity for children, families and seniors in hopes others will get involved in the fight against hunger.

Mayor LaRosiliere, City of Plano, says, “This is the time of year where our community comes together to spread hope with their generosity and care. We look forward to everyone in Collin County donating peanut butter to their fellow neighbor."

You can help end hunger in our community!

For the entire month of September, NTFB will be collecting regular-sized, plastic jars of peanut butter to help feed hungry children and their families. Your company or organization can register to host your own drive, or you can collect jars and drop them off at one of the public drop-off sites throughout Collin County. Our goal this year is to collect 100,000 pounds of peanut butter!

“There are more than 44,000 food insecure children in Collin County alone, and 1 in every 5 kids across North Texas don’t know where their next meal will come from,” said Trisha Cunningham, President and CEO of NTFB. “The collaboration happening across Collin County for this peanut butter drive this year is inspiring and will help tremendously in our fight against hunger in North Texas.”

The North Texas Food Bank (NTFB) is a hunger relief organization with a proven record of accomplishment, earning a 4-star rating from Charity Navigator. They focus on providing our hungry neighbors with access to nutritious foods. Each day, the NTFB and our feeding network provide access to more than 200,000 meals for hungry children, seniors and families across the 13 counties they serve. Last year, NTFB provided access to almost 77 million meals. While we are making steady progress toward closing the hunger gap, much work remains to be done to reach NTFB's 10-year plan of providing access to 92 million nutritious meals annually by 2025. For more information, visit ntfb.org.
