Junior’s peanut butter drive brings impressive response
What a response! Keystone families donated 265 jars to a peanut butter drive.
The drive, a project from junior Gabe, aimed to collect peanut butter for the Snack Pack for Kids program.
“I want to do this drive because it does a lot for kids who are suffering from food insecurity especially since we are in a pandemic right now,” Gabe said.
This organization provides weekend food supplements to serve the needs of chronically hungry children.
Snack Pack for Kids also addresses the correlation between food insecurity and learning. Peanut butter is a good source of protein and food insecurity is particularly high due to the pandemic.
Over the past couple of weeks, parents and students have dropped off jars of peanut butter at the front office or brought it to morning dropoff.
