Richardson City staff delivered 439 lbs. of peanut butter to the North Texas Food Bank (NTFB) as part of the Collin County ‘Spread the Hope’ Peanut Butter Drive.

The goal is to collect 100,000 pounds of peanut butter which NTFB staff are confidence they will meet and possibly surpass this year.  The drive helps raise awareness of food insecurity issues in North Texas.

“Giving food is an easy way that you can address this issue of food insecurity and giving peanut butter is a fun way to do it especially when you have so many leaders mobilizing people to give,” said Erica Yaeger, North Texas Food Bank.

The City of Richardson is one of several Collin County cities that participated in the drive.
