I subscribe to a great newsletter called Mount Dora Buzz. It is full of great information about what is happening in the community. The latest issue had a story about a Peanut Butter and Jelly contest. Mount Dora Buzz is the official sponsor of this event and you can read more about it here. This peaked my interest because I love peanut butter and jelly! I could out eat anyone when it comes to peanut butter and jelly. Game on!
As I read further into the article, I quickly realized that there would be no sandwich eating contest Secretly, I am happy that I won't need to loosen up the waistband in my pants. Instead, it is a donation based challenge similar to a food drive.
Lake County has an annual PB&J. Challenge. It is a way for businesses and residents to help feed children during the summer break. The children are underprivileged and may not be eating regular meals when school is not in session. Donations of unopened jars of peanut butter and jelly are purchased and donated to Lake Cares Food Pantry. They in turn will distribute the donations throughout Lake County so that the children can be fed.
What an excellent opportunity for our community to come together and assist in a great cause. Wise Chiropractic will definitely be participating in this PB&J drive!! We encourage our patients, friends and family to drop off unopened jars of peanut butter and jelly to the office. Donations will be accepted until August 1.
Look for updates and reminders on our Facebook and Instagram pages.
We will be challenging some of our fellow doctors to step up to the challenge. Hmmm.....who will it be?? Stay tuned for that announcement! In the meantime, pick up an extra jar of peanut butter and/or jelly on your next shopping trip to drop off at the office.
