Hi, my name is Lavery Greenfield, and I’m the founder of the Peanut Butter and Jelly Jar Drive.

When I was five years old, I took a tour of The Food Bank of Western Massachusetts and discovered that the most wanted foods in our area were peanut butter and jelly. I knew I wanted to do something, so I started the Peanut Butter and Jelly Jar Drive.

We normally set up collection boxes in local schools and the YMCA, but because of the pandemic, The Food Bank cannot accept food drive donations, so we’re hosting a virtual fund drive. A jar of peanut butter and a jar of jelly each cost $3, so we’re asking you to donate $6 so each family can have a jar of each. The need for food is greater in the four counties of western Massachusetts now than it has ever been. Please donate to our drive so families can get peanut butter and jelly.

Thank you, Lavery
