The Challenge is a food collection drive of peanut butter from within each of the 16 UF/IFAS Extension Northwest District Counties. In addition to what is collected from the Challenge, Ken Barton, Executive Director of the Florida Peanut Producers Association, with the support of his board of directors, provide 2 pallets of peanut butter (approximately 3000 jars) to be divided between the counties. All the peanut butter collected from each county plus the jars donated by the Florida Peanut Producers Association is then given to local food pantries.
Through donations, support from various businesses and groups like county 4-H clubs, local Boy Scouts, Girls Scouts, and churches, the Peanut Butter Challenge continues to grow. Our PB challenge not only raises the awareness of hunger in our community but it also allows us to provide a solution for this ever growing problem.
