  • Robberson Ford Donates 6000 Jars of Peanut Butter to NeighborImpact’s Emergency Food Program

    6/20/2017 10:15 AM

    The 2017 Robberson Ford Peanut Butter Drive proved once again how generous Central Oregonians are these days. Thanks to this successful Peanut Butter Drive, Robberson Ford and Newport Market are donating 5976 - 40oz jars of peanut butter to NeighborImpact’s Emergency Food Assistance Program. Protein rich foods such as peanut butter play an important role for the 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.

    Awareness around lead in our drinking water in Oregon is rising and some schools in our state have had issues with high levels of lead in their drinking water. Given that children are especially susceptible to lead exposure because their bodies absorb metals at higher rates than adults, NeighborImpact thought it necessary to test all Head Start sites in our service area.
