The Oceanside Chamber Partners with the North County Food Bank's for the Annual Scare Away Hunger Peanut Butter Drive

During the month of October, North County companies and organizations partner with the NCFB to raise peanut butter for our Scare Away Hunger Peanut Butter Drive and help us collect this highly coveted food for local children and families in need.

Why Peanut Butter?

Peanut butter is an excellent source of protein for children and families. It is popular with kids. It’s shelf-stable, and one jar can provide more than 12 sandwiches.

Peanut butter is very expensive for the Food Bank to purchase. That is why this year’s peanut butter food drive will be instrumental in helping stock the Food Bank’s shelves with this nutrient-rich superfood for local families in need.

How to Donate?

Donations can be dropped at the Oceanside Chamber offices or through our online food drive
