WANTED: Peanut Butter!
Host a Peanut Butter Drive
What is Wanted: Peanut Butter?
Peanut butter is commonly in short-supply at The Walworth County Food Pantry and is expensive to purchase in bulk. The Wanted: Peanut Butter campaign is a local food drive to ensure a steady supply of this healthy and nutritious staple for hunger families relying on The Walworth County Food Pantry throughout the winter months. Peanut butter is the perfect, kid-friendly food. It’s healthy and nutritious, and a key part of the MyPlate initiative. The MyPlate nutrition guidelines for emergency food distribution focus on the five main food groups: Fruits, Vegetables, Whole Grains, Dairy, and Protein, which includes peanut butter. During the campaign, local businesses, schools and organizations jump on board to host peanut butter food drives. Wanted: Peanut Butter is a true local community effort. Program Timeline: February and March 2019 Goal: We hope to raise 5,000 jars!

Host a Diaper Drive!
Diapers are expensive and without disposable diapers, babies and toddlers cannot attend day care and without day care, the parents can't go to work.
Help us become a reliable source of diapers for the families in need in Walworth County. Hosting a diaper drive will help us become a diaper bank and a regular source of diapers to eligible families.
Consider hosting a Diaper Drive with your local church, school, book club or scouts! It's fun and easy and we provide the entire tool kit to get you started and complete a successful drive. Click here to download the tool kit.
Hold a Toothpaste Drive!
We make sure kids do not go to bed hungry, you can help make sure they go to bed with clean teeth. It's simple to organize a drive for this inexpensive yet much needed product. Families cannot use their FoodShare to buy toothpaste and you can help assure they have enough through our pantry. Hold a toothpaste drive, keep track of what you collect and drop it off at the pantry Tuesday or Friday between 9 am to 5 pm. If needed, we can pick it up!
