Children need nutritious food to grow and thrive. And they need it every day. Arkansas Foodbank would like to thank the Benton and Bryant communities for being united against hunger and making a difference in the lives of hungry children in Arkansas! In the weeks leading up to the Salt Bowl, schools working together collected a total of 18,740 pounds of peanut butter.
Bryant Elementary collected the largest amount: 4,122 pounds of peanut butter. BES retains the trophy for three years running.
Skippy Foods gave 7500 pounds to the amount donated from the Saline County Schools making this year’s grand total 26,240 pounds of peanut butter.
Thank you to all those who donated and participated in the drive.
