Richardson is again participating in the annual North Texas Food Bank peanut butter drive that is being held throughout September, with a goal of receiving 300,000 pounds of peanut butter donations to benefit local food banks. Peanut butter is perpetually on food bank lists of most-needed foods, since it’s nutritious, kid-friendly and high in protein. Local donations may be taken directly to Richardson’s Network of Community Ministries, which operates a Mobile Food Pantry and other food programs and is a recipient of the drive. Drop off jars at Network’s new facility, 1500 International Pkwy., during regular food donation hours (Mondays-Thursdays 8 a.m.-3:45 p.m. and Saturdays 9 a.m.-2 p.m.) or give online through Network’s Amazon Wish List
