Spread the Love to support local food banks

DONATE JARS OF PEANUT BUTTER AND JELLY IN FEBRUARY

Post Date:02/04/2019 12:54 PM

Help the Commerce City Police Department “Spread the Love” and fill police cruisers with donations of peanut butter and/or jelly jars on February 9 and 16 in Commerce City. Now in its 12th year, Spread the Love has provided nearly 9,800 jars of this nonperishable staple to help fill the seasonal gap at local food banks. More than 1,800 jars were donated through the program last year alone.

According to Hunger Free Colorado, nearly 1 in 6 Colorado households with children report an inability to afford adequate food. Peanut butter and jelly sandwiches are high in protein and easy for kids to make without adult supervision. Help make a difference by donating peanut butter and jelly jars to the annual Spread the Love campaign.

The public is invited to help “Cram the Police Cruisers” with donations of peanut butter and jelly at King Soopers and Walmart locations in Commerce City. King Soopers is committed to the goal of ending hunger in communities and eliminating food waste in the company by 2025 through the Zero Hunger Zero Waste initiative.
