Starting today, helping to reduce hunger and food insecurity in the Delaware Valley is as simple as clicking the “Like” button on Facebook.
Back for the fourth year, Philabundance’s annual “Spread the Love” campaign is seeking your support in its mission to collect as much peanut butter and jelly as possible for Valentine’s Day. Why peanut butter, you ask? Well, because peanuts contain more than 30 essential nutrients and are naturally cholesterol-free, making it one of the most nutritional, kid-friendly foods. Unfortunately however, there are more than 900 thousand people across the Delaware Valley who are at risk for chronic hunger and malnutrition and cannot afford to whip up a PB&J whenever they want.
This year, Subaru will be donating one jar of peanut butter or jelly to the organization for every “Like” Philabundance gets on Facebook between now and next Friday, Feb. 15. Meanwhile, Philabundance is also giving away a $500 US Airways airline voucher within the continental US from or a 7-night stay at a Caribbean resort through Elite Island Resorts. You can enter to win these prizes by doing one or all of the following:
1. Heading to Philabundance’s blog and leaving a comment with your favorite PB&J recipe on the recent “Spread the Love” post written by Chef Nathan Volz of 10 Arts Bistro & Lounge, and one of their regular blog contributors.
2. Posting a photo of you with your PB&J sandwich on Philabundance’s Facebook page.
3. Making a donation online.
