For the month of June, Protiviti - Seattle is assisting NorthWest Harvest in their push to help with Ford Motor Company's Peanut Butter Drive!
With schools out for the summer this month, many in-school food programs become extremely limited confronting thousands of local kids and families with the realities of food insecurity. Ford Motor Company Fund, the philanthropic arm of Ford and Northwest Ford dealers, have kicked off its annual Peanut Butter Drive in an effort to support these families in need with a goal of raising 50,000 lbs of protein and nutrient-rich peanut butter and peanut butter alternatives.
Peanut butter is a food item loved by food banks and kids everywhere. It's protein-rich - which is an essential nutrient for growing kids - has an amazing shelf life and is known for getting picky young eaters to eat different types of fresh foods like apples and celery. Throughout the pandemic, the demand for nut butters skyrocketed, diminishing food bank supplies, so the current need to stock shelves with this product for families in need is even greater.
Looking forward to see how much our office is able to help the cause!
