    After a successful Peanut Butter Drive, Robberson Ford in Bend and Prineville is donating approximately 4374 - 40oz jars of peanut butter to NeighborImpact’s Emergency Food Assistance Program. Protein rich foods such as peanut butter play an important role for NeighborImpact food program, especially in the summer months when many children lose access to school nutrition programs. It is estimated nearly 24% of children are unsure how their next meal will be provided and, when school is out during the summer months, local food banks carry a larger responsibility. Peanut butter is an important protein staple to feed kids during these summer months, but is difficult to acquire in adequate quantities.
