The Allegan County Food Pantry Collaborative (a program of the Allegan County Community Foundation) is excited to kick off our annual Peanut Butter Drive on National Peanut Butter Day – January 24th!
The drive runs from January 24 to February 28, 2021. Our goal is to distribute peanut butter to 5,000 of our neighbors, co-workers, and friends in Allegan County. Peanut butter is highly nutritious and remains one of the top 3 items requested by our food pantry members.
Peanut butter jars will be distributed to our 16 member pantries county-wide: Allegan United Methodist Church, Christ Community Church, Allegan County Food Pantry, Hamilton Christian Reformed Church, Hungry for Christ, Christian Neighbors Plainwell, St. Margaret – St. Vincent DePaul, Martin United Methodist Church, Christian Neighbors Douglas, Ladders of Hope, Love, Inc. Pullman, Hopkins United Methodist Church, Christian Neighbors Wayland, Project Hope, Epiphany Lutheran Church, Community Action House – Holland.
