Join the 5th Annual Peanut Butter Drive

Mayor LaRosiliere and Plano City Council encourage the community to get involved!

There are over 44,000 food insecure children in Collin County alone. Hunger can be a hidden issue in any community. The City of Plano helps 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 says, “By donating a jar of peanut butter, you’re helping someone in your community, people that you might even know and that you just don’t realize are in that situation.”

 

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 the five public drop-off sites throughout Plano. Our goal this year is to beat last year’s total and collect 50,000 pounds of peanut butter!

 

Public Drop Off Sites:

  • Davis Library | 7501-B Independence Pkwy. | Plano, TX 75025
  • Plano Municipal Center | 1520 K Ave. | Plano, TX 75074
