Take a bit out of hunger – peanut butter collection drive

Join Santa Rosa County Extension along with the University of Florida Institute of Food & Agricultural Sciences and the Florida Peanut Producer Association to help take a bite out of hunger by participating in a local peanut butter drive. All peanut butter collected will be donated to a local food pantry during Farm-City Week.

The average child will eat 1,500 peanut butter and jelly sandwiches before he or she graduates high school. Keep children eating locally grown peanuts in healthy, nutritious and yummy peanut butter by bringing unopened jars of peanut butter to one of three drop off sites now through Nov. 15:
