The Texas Peanut Producers Board donates 10,000 jars of peanut butter to the South Plains Food Bank
The South Plains Food Bank is ecstatic to receive 10,000 jars of peanut butter generously donated by the Texas Peanut Producers Board in partnership with Peanut Proud Inc. Donated just in time for integration into Christmas boxes, this outstanding contribution will be distributed to the food‐insecure of Lubbock this December.
“We are excited to see peanut butter making its way into our Christmas boxes,” says David Weaver, CEO of the South Plains Food Bank.” Peanut butter is an item on our most needed list we don’t see enough. We esteem it for its protein and nutritional qualities and we couldn’t be happier to be able to provide it for our friends this holiday season.”
Shelly Nutt, executive director of the Texas Peanut Producers Board, is excited to be an integral part of this donation and recognizes the opportune time at which the Food Bank is receiving this peanut butter.
“During the holiday season, while so many of us are feasting with family and friends, there are families in our community that will go hungry,” says Nutt.
“Since children won’t be in school, breakfast and lunch at school aren’t available. This peanut butter, hopefully, will stand in the gap during the holidays, giving our children a healthy food option until schoolprovided meals are once again available.”
