Spread the Love This February

Peanut butter is one of our most needed items, but it’s rarely donated. Help change that.

Spread the Love

Open the pantry door in most Middle Tennessee households, and you’re likely to find a jar of peanut butter. It’s a staple in almost every home, including those struggling with hunger.

Because of its nutritional value, long shelf life, and widespread popularity, peanut butter is one of our most needed items.  

Not only do we try to stock the shelves at our Partner Agencies with peanut butter, but we also aim to include at least one jar in every Emergency Food Box, a program which provides individuals and families who have unexpectedly hit hard times with a box of essential food items.

Despite the demand, peanut butter is not often donated.

Throughout the month of February, help us #SpreadTheLove by donating jars of peanut butter.


DONATE—Bring jars of peanut butter directly to the food bank. There are donations barrels at our Nashville and Camden distribution centers as well as your local Kroger.

VOLUNTEER—Throughout the month of February, we’re highlighting the importance of food drives to our volunteers. If you’re donating your time to us this month, bring jars of peanut butter along with you. Better yet, encourage your entire group to bring peanut butter! During volunteer shifts, there will be donation bins available at all three of our distribution centers with donation receipts available as needed.

HOST A FOOD DRIVE—Get your workplace, school, church, or family involved with our Spread the Love initiative by hosting a food drive. Get started here.  

GIVE TO OUR VIRTUAL FOOD DRIVE—If coming to the food bank isn’t possible, you can Spread the Love from the comfort of your own home by giving to our virtual food drive. Click here to donate.
