Clermont County 4-H is partnering with Empower Youth to fill weekend food packs with a family favorite – peanut butter and jelly! This classic sandwich is a good source of protein and is easy for school-aged youth to make on their own. Empower Youth provides food packs to more than 700 local youth each week! The packs are meant to be an encouragement to families who may find themselves needing a little extra to stretch their groceries for the week.
4-H Clubs, families, community members and businesses are challenged to collect donations of any brand or type of peanut butter or nut butter alternative, jelly and jam (no expired, opened or homemade items or pre-made sandwiches will be accepted). Donations can be dropped-off at the Clermont County Extension Office until 4:00 p.m. on Friday, September 28.
Help us reach our goal of filling all 700 weekend food packs with peanut butter and jelly!
