Peanut Butter 'N' July In Charlotte/Mecklenburg/Gaston
For the eighth consecutive year, it's Peanut Butter 'N' July time in Charlotte, North Carolina and throughout Mecklenburg and Gaston Counties. We've all heard about Christmas in July. And who hasn't heard of Peanut Butter & Jelly?
If you're wondering what the Charlotte metro area's Peanut Butter 'N' July is all about ... here's the scoop: WBT 1110 Talk Radio and Harris Teeter Grocery Stores in Mecklenburg and Gaston Counties team up annually for contributions of peanut butter to help children in the Charlotte area from going hungry during the summer months. Did you know that because peanut butter is protein-rich, it offers more than 30 essential vitamins and nutrients and has a long shelf life? It's also one of the most requested and most valuable commodities in a food bank?
Because Charlotte is such an affluent city overall and because we're constantly hearing about how well Charlotte is growing,, it's easy to forget that we have children who suffer from hunger here, as well. An astonishing 188,000 children in our region are at risk of hunger every day, And because there are no school lunches provided in the summer months, many more children go hungry during these months in the Charlotte area than most of us realize.
