Wakulla 4 – H Peanut Butter Campaign

Did you know that the average school-aged child will eat approximately 1500 peanut butter and jelly sandwiches during their years in school? We are kicking off our Peanut Butter Campaign for Wakulla County 4-H. Please drop off unopened jars of peanut butter in any size at the Wakulla County Extension Office by November 16th. In conjunction with Farm/City Week and the Feeding Wakulla Taskforce, we are asking individuals, clubs and businesses to donate to help stock local food pantries this holiday season. The 4-H club that donates the most peanut butter in OUNCES will receive a prize from the Extension Office. Thank you in advance for your generosity to our cause. More…Wakulla Peanuts Flyer

Why peanut butter? Peanut butter is a nutritious food. It provides lots of nutrients and protein. Put it between two slices of bread and you have a complete protein. Peanut butter keeps well and is easily accessible for adults and children. Peanuts are also a major crop of many of the counties in the Florida Panhandle.
