Peanut Butter: a nostalgic staple found in most American kitchens has made its appearance in many lunch boxes or ladled around a spoon for a snack. According to the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), The creamy nutty spread holds 7 grams of protein for every 2 0z serving. Peanut butter is filling enough to satisfy a rumbling belly.
According to recent reports 1 and 6 youth face hunger in America. UF/IFAS Extension Bradford County along with Bradford County’s 4-H is taking the challenge in the annual Peanut Butter Challenge to help hungry youth across America. With your help, we can reach many children in need.
Please spread the word In this effort to combat hunger by taking part in the Peanut Butter Challenge this event runs through November 24. Bradford Extension Office will be collecting jars of unopened peanut butter. The community effort will supply peanut butter to local food banks and community drives.
Your efforts could result in a child receiving lunch at school or home. This effort means the difference between a child going hungry throughout the day or receiving a meal. Can we count on you to take the challenge? If you have any questions please call us at the UF/IFAS Extension Bradford County 904-966-6299.
