The Salt Bowl is more than a football game … it’s all about community. What better way to serve the community than feeding our hungry neighbors?
Arkansas Foodbank is partnering with Skippy Foods for the annual Peanut Butter Drive from August 1-23 to provide food for children and families in need. Schools from Bryant and Benton will be competing to see which can donate the most peanut butter while reaching the goal of 25,000 pounds. Skippy Foods then provides a matching gift.
We are encouraging parents and students to bring their peanut butter donations to Open House next week. Donations will be accepted through August 23 at any Bryant school.
Arkansas Foodbank is also partnering with several local businesses to be drop off locations. Saline County residents can drop off peanut butter at local Big Reds as well as Everett Buick GMC. Businesses will then credit the peanut butter to the school of their choice.
The peanut butter stays in the school districts and food pantries in Saline County, serving our children, families and seniors.
