An annual Salt Bowl tradition, the Peanut Butter drive kicked off on August 28. Bryant Schools will collect jars of peanut butter through the entire month of September, which coincides with Hunger Action Month. Help us provide a nutritious staple food item for children and families in Saline County! Students are encouraged to bring peanut butter for the drive. Donations can be dropped off at any Bryant school between the hours of 8:30am-2:30pm.
With the goal of 25,000 pounds, schools from Bryant and Benton will compete to see which one will collect the most peanut butter. The friendly competition will end with a trophy presentation to the winning school and district.
The peanut butter will be donated to Arkansas Foodbank member pantries located in Saline County to be distributed immediately to children and families in our communities.
