Get involved in our 5th annual PB&J campaign to help Spread the Love throughout the Conejo Valley!
Did you know that the average kid eats about 1,500 peanut butter and jelly sandwiches before graduating high school? PB&J is a great choice as peanuts contain an array of healthy qualities including over 30 nutrients! This lunchtime staple has long been a go-to for parents, but it’s getting more expensive.
In recent years, the price of peanut butter has increased by over 30 percent! Things like poor weather conditions and production challenges are behind this increase, but the reason doesn’t matter to struggling families who can no longer afford this pantry staple.
That’s where our Spread the Love campaign comes in! At Manna Conejo Valley Food Bank, we distribute about 5,000 jars of peanut butter annually. During the Spread the Love PB&J campaign, we’re asking you to get involved in helping us collect as many jars of Peanut Butter AND Jelly as possible. Please consider dropping a jar or two (or more!) of this nutritious, kid-friendly food off at Manna through the month of February!
This Spread the Love campaign is an opportunity to make a real difference in the lives of hungry children, families, and seniors in the Conejo Valley. Please join us! If you’d like more information about getting involved, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
