Whole Foods is asking for the community's help to feed children. It’s holding a peanut butter drive at its store off Hydraulic Road. All the donations go to families through the Blue Ridge Area Food Bank.
It is part of an effort to cut down on summer hunger.
“While everyone's headed to the pool and going on vacation, we don't realize so many children who rely on free and reduced lunches at school...they're hungry all summer long,” said Kristen Rabourdin, with Whole Foods marketing.
So far, donations are a little slow, but you have until Friday to take part in the drive.
Whole Foods says it will match the number of peanut butter jars people drop off.
