Harvest Hope Kicks off Spread the Love Peanut Butter Drive

February 12, 2020

In the spirit of February and the month of love, Harvest Hope Food Bank is looking to the community to “Spread the Love” and donate 1,000 jars of peanut butter by the end of the month.

Peanut butter is one of the most frequently requested items by food banks because it is kid-friendly, shelf-stable, and protein-rich.

“With over 65,000 people in Richland County struggling with food insecurity, we count on the community to help us spread the love to these families who are spread too thin,” says Wendy Broderick, Harvest Hope CEO.

Community members looking to donate jars of peanut butter can drop off donations at the locations listed below. Since glass can break easily, we appreciate your donations of plastic jars of peanut butter.
