NEWBERRY – The City of Newberry is partnering again this year with the Alachua County Extension Offices in their Annual Peanut Butter Challenge. From Oct. 1 – Nov. 24 these two organizations are asking for donations of unopened jars of peanut butter for distribution to local food pantries to help feed families in need.

As Thanksgiving is just around the corner, jars of peanut butter can help stretch a family’s budget to help them be able to afford the food needed to help them participate in the holiday.

Last year, with the help of citizen donations, UF/IFAS collected more than 1,000 pounds of peanut butter.

Unopened jars of peanut butter can be dropped off at Newberry City Hall, 25440 W. Newberry Road, at the Martin Luther King Jr. Community Center, 25515 N.W. 6th Avenue or at Easton Newberry Sports Complex, 24880 N.W. 16th Avenue.
