This February, Western New Yorkers can help spread the love and reduce food insecurity by donating unopened jars of peanut butter to FeedMore WNY.
From Feb. 1-29, FeedMore WNY will hold its “Spread the Love” food drive to collect more peanut butter – one of its most highly requested food items. Community members may drop off donations at FeedMore WNY’s warehouse, located at 91 Holt St., Buffalo, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. weekdays, and from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturdays.
People also have the option of donating peanut butter online to be shipped directly to FeedMore WNY through https://yougivegoods.com/peanutbutter2024.
Individuals, schools, corporations or community groups looking to organize a peanut butter drive for FeedMore WNY are encouraged to contact Volunteer and Event Coordinator Betsy Campbell at [email protected] or call 716-822-2005, ext. 3090.
“Donations of peanut butter always are highly desired and greatly appreciated here at FeedMore WNY,” Campbell said. “Not only is peanut butter packed with protein, but it is shelf stable and beloved by children and adults alike. We frequently distribute peanut butter to our partner food pantries and hunger-relief agencies throughout our four-county service area, and it is a staple menu item for our BackPack Program serving children in need.”
