The Spread the Love is an annual campaign held April - August that encourages the donation of peanut butter and jelly as well as financial contributions to help feed children in Mesquite during the summer who live in food insecure environments. These children receive free or reduced lunch during the school year, but need assistance to nutritious lunch during the summer break.
All donations are shared with a food pantry in Mesquite, Sharing Life Community Outreach, to redistribute within the Mesquite community.
Financial contributions can be made year-round through the City of Mesquite's Donations webpage. Mesquite water utility bill customers also have the option of making a monthly donation through their Water Utility Bill. Financial contributions can also be made directly to Sharing Life Community Outreach on their Donationswebpage.
For more information or to arrange a large donation of peanut butter and/or jelly, please contact Wayne Larson, Director of Communications and Marketing, at 972-329-8319 or at email@example.com.
