MILWAUKEE — They took on the challenge, and on Monday, November 12th they got to see the results of their hard work. 78 local schools teamed up with Feeding America and collected 10 tons of peanut butter and jelly for kids in need during October. That’s 20,929 pounds collected in the month-long challenge!
“It’s just wow. I can’t believe how much peanut butter and jelly there is,” Keaton Cooper, a seventh-grader from St. Patrick Parish School in Elkhorn said.
On Monday, the winning schools got to sort through the PB&J and pack boxes to be delivered to shelters, pantries and meal programs to feed hungry children.
