Peanut Butter 'N' July Drive In Charlotte. Help End Childhood Hunger.

Peanut Butter 'N' July In Charlotte/Mecklenburg/Gaston 

 

 

Peanut Butter 'N' July In CharlotteFor 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.

 

Where/How To Donate Peanut Butter In Charlotte Area This July

Throughout July,  at all Mecklenburg and Gaston County Harris Teeter stores, a “virtual donation” of a jar of Peanut Butter can be added to your shopping total automatically at checkout.  Harris Teeter will will match each donation by  adding a jar of  Peter Pan  Peanut Butter to WBT’s Peanut Butter 'N' July campaign! 4,800+ pounds of peanut butter have been donated in prior years, representing some 5,000 jars.  Could it be any easier to donate to help kids from going hungry?

 

 

This information about Charlotte/Mecklenburg's annual Peanut Butter 'N' July program is provided  by Nina Hollander and the Carolinas Realty Partners  with Coldwell Banker. We've been opening doors for Charlotte area home buyers and sellers for 20+ years.

Sheri Sperry - MCNE® hi Sheri... it just breaks my heart to think of how many children go hungry in the summer months... just no excuse for it in a country as wealthy as ours.

Grant Schneider hi Grant... this has been a very popular and successful food drive in the Charlotte area for years. Mostly, I think, because it's easy to contribute.

Will Hamm hi Will... that is a very nice thing to do/organize. We waste so much food and throw away perfectly good food throughout the country every day. It's a crime to do so, I think, when so many go hungry.

Ron and Alexandra Seigel hi Alexandra... this is the first year they are doing the virtual/matching donation. In past years, they had bins at the Harris Teeter stores where people could leave their donations. I suspect they will have bins out at some point, but doing it virtually is a no-brainer requiring little thought to picking up jars of peanut butter to donate.

George Souto hi George... this is a very worthy cause. This is the first year they are doing the "virtual" donation at the register with a match from Harris Teeter instead of actual donations of jars. It will be interesting to see if they raise more that way.

Such an amazing program!  It makes me very sad to know that there are children out there that are starving.

Brian England hi Brian... it's really shameful that a rich nation like ours has so much hunger, especially among the young and seniors. The Charlotte/Mecklenburg area has just over a million in population... almost 190,000 food insecure kids is a crime!

HI Nina- I remember this from before and it is such a worthy cause. The thought of any child going hungry is unbearable.

Morning Nina.

As a lover of peanut butter, I had no idea about the amount of vitamins it has.  Learned something new this morning

Sally K. & David L. Hanson hi Sally, I also donate peanut butter all year long. This is a once a year event here that helps bring the subject of food insecurity for kids, especially in summer, to the forefront.

James Dray hi James... peanut butter is very nutritious... as much as I love it, I avoid it for the most part because of all the sugar in it.

Good Morning Nina Hollander - What a great cause!

Have you noticed how expensive it is to buy a good jar of peanut butter these days? On my local shelves, they are going between $8.00 and $15.00 a jar!

But for the kids, they are worth it and I'm sure they would take cash donations too.

Patricia Feager, MBA, CRS, GRI,MRP hi Patricia... say what??? Harris Teeter peanut butter on special is no 99 cents a jar. Jif is priced at 3 for $5. We always seem to have specials here on peanut butter, which is when I buy up a storm for the food pantries.

What a neat drive this is. No doubt the response is always terrific. And the need seems to be significant just about everywhere these days.

What a great idea.  Peanut butter is a good food for kids and adults too.  I don't think we have a program like this.
