Every September during Hunger Action Month, the North Texas Food Bank (NTFB) creates awareness about food insecurity and hosts a Peanut Butter Drive to collect this shelf-stable, kid-friendly protein to help feed our hungry neighbors. The goal for the 2022 drive is to collect 500,000 pounds of peanut butter.
Join the Coppell City Council and help NTFB meet their goal by donating regular-sized, plastic jars of peanut butter (other nut butters and sunflower butter also accepted) or by making a monetary donation to help feed children and their families who are facing hunger.
NTFB is hosting a drive-thru peanut butter donation collection event from 10 am - 2 pm on Saturday, September 24, in the Coppell Town Center parking lot, 255 Parkway Blvd. Donations can be also be dropped off anytime at The CORE, Wagon Wheel Tennis & Pickleball Center, or at one of the official collection sites through September 30. Monetary donations can also be made online.
