Leave a Lasting Legacy
and Fight Hunger
The creation of a planned gift
is a personal choice, and it is
important that you create the
plan that works best for you.
You can help ensure that
future generations grow
up healthy, not hungry, by
making a planned gift to
the North Texas Food Bank.
This helps us to secure and
distribute food to those in
need, for years to come.

SEPTEMBER 1–30, 2019
Now in its 6th year, the Spread the Hope Collin County Peanut Butter
Drive will take place during the entire month of September. Companies,
organizations, schools and individuals can easily get involved by registering
a drive, begin spreading the word, start collecting peanut butter donations
and coordinating a pickup or drop-off upon completion.
Through organizing a peanut butter drive of your own, you are
directly helping to end hunger right here in our community. The
peanut butter that is collected will end up in our hungry neighbors’
pantries and will provide more than a meal; it will provide hope.
Last year, more than 77,000 pounds of peanut butter were collected
thanks to our partnership with the City of Plano and everyone who
participated. We are excited to announce this year’s goal is 100,000 pounds,
and with the support of our community, we know we can surpass it.
Mayor LaRosiliere, City of Plano says, “This is the time of year where our
community comes together to spread hope with their generosity and care. We
look forward to everyone in Collin County donating peanut butter to their

Because of your support, children like
Nevaeh will have the food they need to
thrive this school year.
You help nourish young minds and bodies during the
summer and school year
Whether in the summer or during the school year,
hundreds of thousands of North Texas parents worry
how they’ll feed their children. Without access to
the free and reduced-price meals they can depend on
throughout the school year, summer can be a scramble
for survival. And even once school starts, the provided
meals can only go so far.
We’re so thankful for your support. You made it
possible to provide breakfast, lunch and an afternoon
snack every day during the summer for the children
who attend Voice of Hope Ministries, one of our
summer feeding program sites. And now that school
is about to start, your support will continue to feed
children through our programs.
The kids love it and are so grateful.
Children like 9-year-old Armonte, who says “it
feels like I have emptiness inside my stomach” when
he’s hungry. Fortunately, Armonte and his 5-year-old
brother haven’t had to worry about that since they’ve
been coming to Voice of Hope.
Ashia is a second grader who loves reading and
writing, and she can’t get enough of the healthy foods
she receives like strawberries and bananas.
“I like that we sometimes make our own snacks and
it’s called Kids in the Kitchen,” Ashia says.
“I’m thankful for coming to Voice of Hope,”
says Nevaeh, 8. She loves fruits such as green apples
and oranges, and she and her older sister have been
attending for one year.
Daniela, 10, is grateful for Voice of Hope all
year, but especially now that school will soon be back
“Thank you because the food helps me focus,”
We’re so grateful for your support of our feeding
programs during the summertime and throughout the
school year. No child should have to be hungry, and
thanks to your support of the North Texas Food
Bank, they won’t be.
