On Friday, November 16, 2012, the University of Florida IFAS – Holmes County Extension Office officially ended the Holmes County Peanut Butter Challenge with a total of 65 pounds of peanut butter! Niki Crawson, Holmes County 4-H Agent, and Judy Corbus, Holmes County FCS Agent, packed up the nutritious donation and delivered it to HCMA Ministry Center & Thrift Store located in Bonifay on Hwy 90 W, to help local families in need.
BES 1st Grade classrooms were a large part of the collection drive this year! Special thanks to all 1st grade students and their teachers for supporting this project. Mrs. Taylor’s class held the title of most jars collected and will be celebrating their community support win with a pizza party!
On behalf of the University of Florida IFAS – Holmes County Extension, thank you to all the local citizens who participated in the peanut butter drive to support local families in need and local peanut producers!
