Join Allen as we participate for the fifth consecutive year in North Texas Food Bank's annual Peanut Butter Drive. Held each year in September, the campaign brings together North Texas cities, organizations, schools, and faith-based groups to collect peanut and other nut butters for children and families. The peanut butter collected is then distributed through NTFB Child Programs and throughout NTFB's feeding network.

This year’s campaign goal is 125,000 pounds of peanut butter for immediate distribution and $275,000 to purchase peanut butter throughout the year.

How do I participate?
Through Sept. 30, you can donate one of two ways—drop off a physical peanut butter donation at one of the City facilities below, or donate virtually at
