Bring peanut butter or jelly to your local Bank of North Georgia during business hours for the second annual Back-to-School Peanut Butter and Jelly Food Drive July 20-31 to benefit 27 local food pantries, including Rockdale County Emergency Relief.
Last year, the bank collected 1,804 jars at 2,627 pounds, which is over one ton of PB&J, at its more than 40 branch locations. That is enough to make more than 21,016 sandwiches for children in metro Atlanta (with approximately four ounces spread on each sandwich). Creamy peanut butter was the clear winner over crunchy and the bank received more grape jelly than any other flavor.
