What if you could build a healthier community without spending a dime?

From now through May 30th, you can, because the Hollister Lucky Supermarket joins almost 70 Bay Area Lucky stores in launching its annual “Peanut Butter Roundup” this week.

The Hollister Lucky is partnering with Community FoodBank, and all contributions will help feed people in San Benito County.

Jif peanut butter and Smucker’s jelly are offering shoppers a powerful incentive this year. People buying one jar of their products will get a second jar free to donate. A barrel is located near checkstands, making it easy to join the campaign. In 2015, Lucky and Save Mart stores together collected nine tons of peanut butter and jelly — enough to make more than a quarter million sandwiches.

The Peanut Butter roundup is deliberately timed to wrap up just before schools close for summer vacation, ending school meals. Peanut butter is especially valuable because it’s shelf stable, high in protein and most children like it.

 

Community Food Bank’s mission is to provide food, nutritional education and advocacy for our neighbors in need within San Benito County.
