Lake County 4-H youth had 365 volunteers assisting with the collection of peanut butter at local Publix Super Markets for local food pantries and the Second Harvest Food Bank. The final tally of collected jars of peanut butter for Lake County 4-Hers weighed in at more than 3,895 pounds.

“We are very excited about the hard work Lake County youth put into this project,” said Sarah Hensley, 4-H Youth Development Extension Agent.
For this peanut butter drive, Second Harvest Food Bank and area Publix Super Markets partnered with the 4-H District 8, which includes the counties of Brevard, Lake, Orange, Osceola, Seminole and Volusia, to alleviate the urgent problem of hunger among Central Florida residents.
