Looking for a unique way to help fight the war on hunger?
Currently, there are two local peanut butter related donation challenges that are being orchestrated by Jefferson County groups.
The first is the Jefferson County Farm Bureau's Spread The Love campaign.
Through the campaign, the farm bureau is collecting unopened jars of peanut butter, which will be donated to local food banks in Monticello as well as to the Ronald McDonald House.
The Spread The Love campaign will run until Thursday, November 1 and the jars of peanut butter can be dropped off at the Farm Bureau's location on 105 W. Anderson St. in Monticello.
The second is the 2018 Peanut Butter Challenge, hosted by the UF/IFAS Jefferson County Extension Office.
The challenge also asks for unopened jars of peanut butter as it strives to help fight local hunger; all locally collected jars of peanut butter will be donated to local food pantries.
The Florida Peanut Producers Association will be matching donations.
The drop off locations for the 2018 Peanut Butter Challenge are:
UF/IFAS Extension Office (2729 W. Washington Hwy); Jefferson County Public Library (375 S. Water Street); FMB Bank (200 E. Washington Street); and Capital City Bank (800 S. Jefferson Street).
The challenge ends on Friday, November 16.
