September 2020 is proclaimed Hunger Action Month. Hunger Action Month works to promote ways for individuals, organizations and committees everywhere to get involved and help fight the hunger crisis.
The nationwide campaign strives to mobilize the public into acting on the issue of hunger and help the more than 14% of the Collin County population who are food insecure, which includes over 18% of children. In an effort to raise awareness and curb this trend, we have collaborated with other cities in Collin County and the North Texas Food Bank in a community initiative, and have received an outpouring of love from our citizens. The Parker City Council will not relent in its efforts to care for our own, and we challenge all of Collin County to get involved.
During the month of September, we will step up to help solve the hunger crisis in North Texas by partnering with ALL of Collin County in the Annual Peanut Butter Drive. 2020 will be a great year as we seek to virtually collect an unprecedented 220,000 pounds of peanut butter. Last year in 2019, the City of Parker collected 5696 ounces or 356 pounds of peanut butter thanks to the contributions and thoughtfulness of Parker residents.
Contributions of regular size plastic peanut butter jars can be dropped off in the lobby of Parker City Hall. Lets make 2020 an even better year, as the more we collect, the more impact we can make. Let’s get out there and do it!
