Landmark Ford Lincoln, in conjunction with the Ford Focus on Hunger, is joining other Ford dealers throughout the Northwest, to collect jars of peanut butter supporting the  summer demand for kid-friendly foods at our local food banks.

The peanut butter drive, which runs through the end of July is in response to the increased demand for this important staple during the summer months, when many children lose access to school nutrition programs. It is estimated nearly 24 percent of children are unsure how their next meal will be provided and when school is out during the summer months, local food banks carry a larger responsibility to feed kids. Peanut butter is an important protein staple to feed kids during these summer months, but is difficult to acquire in adequate quantities.

To make a donation, bring jars of peanut butter to either the New Car Showroom or our Service Building.  Or cash donations will be accepted and will be used to purchase more peanut butter!

This annual drive helps gather thousands of pounds of peanut butter, feeding kids throughout the summer. Those unable to donate in person can also give online at www.fordfeedskids.org by clicking on the food bank of their choice to make a cash donation.

This drive is part of a five-state campaign in the Pacific Northwest by Ford dealers to support their community food banks and to make sure no child goes hungry this summer.
