EXTENSION CONNECTION: Join the Peanut Butter Challenge (VIDEO)

Published: Monday, October 21, 2013 at 05:49 PM.

Please donate so that children can keep eating locally grown peanuts in healthy, nutritious and yummy peanut butter.

Okaloosa County farmers grew 2,885 acres of peanuts in 2012. Most peanuts grown in Florida are dried, shelled and processed into peanut butter, roasted nuts, candy or other products.

Of course, many of us enjoy fresh boiled peanuts, sold as “green” peanuts, during harvest time!

Here’s how you can participate in the challenge:

•Bring your unopened jars of peanut butter to one of the drop-off sites listed below.

•Tell your friends and families about the Peanut Butter Challenge.

•Encourage co-workers to join the competition.
