Food Shelf: Peanut Butter Project seeks community donations


For two months last year, no peanut butter was available at the Bemidji Community Food Shelf.

"(That) is unprecedented," said Jack Judkins, the coordinator of the food shelf.

A new effort called the Peanut Butter Project aims to address that need by gathering peanut butter donations to be given to the food shelf. Collection bins for jars of peanut butter are available at Paul Bunyan Mall, Lueken's Village Foods, MarketPlace Foods and Harmony Natural Food Co-op.
