  6. The Snack Pak 4 Kids mission is to feed CHRONICALLY HUNGRY CHILDREN. That is defined as children in and around Bexar County who have WEEKEND HUNGER. According to 15-20% of children that receive free or reduced lunches face have weekend hunger.
  7. Bexar County has 100,000+ children on free or reduced lunch so that means that there are 15,000 to 20,000 children that may not have a meal or adequate protein and food on the weekends.
  8. Snack Pak 4 Kids currently provides weekend food to over 2,500 of these children across many schools and districts. They provide name brand snacks and food each Friday.  AND ONCE A MONTH they give these children PEANUT BUTTER to PROVIDE protein when they may have run out of other food.
  9. A question you may get is:what about peanut butter allergies for these children? SP4KSA does not randomly distribute food but works with school teachers, counselors, and then has guardians sign approval. The guardian also indicates if there is a PB allergy and an alternative is provided.
  10. In the first 3 Peanut Butter Bowls between Johnson and Brandeis in 2016-18 we collected over 15,000 jars of peanut butter for these children.
  11. In our first 3 PB Bowls—we have been blessed to have a few individuals step up and donate large quantities of Peanut Butter which has been amazing! We hope this continues but also: IF EACH FAN BRINGS ONE JAR (or two or three) to OPENING GAME NIGHT we will do a great job fighting hunger! So:  EACH ONE BRING ONE!
  12. #WeAllWin refers to:  When we feed hungry people, WE ALL WIN!
  13. New Braunfels collected peanut butter goes to S.O.S. Food Bank in NB. S.O.S. = Spirit Of Sharing. They provide families with a “Basic Bag” of food which includes dozen eggs, flour, other items and of course: PEANUT BUTTER.  S.O.S. provides this food to over 8,000 individuals a year.
  14. Very Bold Ministries is the non-profit 501(c)(3) organization that has helped establish the Peanut Butter Bowl. Steve Teel is the president.
  15. Not one Peanut Butter Bowl would exist without the leadership and support of high school football coaches and their wives, the district Athletic Directors, coaches, teachers, and LOVING Communities who help us to feed hungry children and families!
