Cypress-Woodlands Junior Forum and Humanitarian Peanut Butter Canning Project
THE WOODLANDS, Texas - Seventeen members of the Cypress-Woodlands Junior Forum (CWJF) recently volunteered with the Humanitarian Peanut Butter Canning Project. The volunteers worked a four hour shift and produced 6,732 jars of peanut butter. The service program is a popular one for CWJF. Members enjoy being a part of the assembly line and working on achieving the goal for the day.
The state of the art Peanut Butter Cannery, located at 16333 Hafer Road, Houston, is owned and operated by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter- day Saints. The Church has been a supporter of the Houston Food Bank for over a decade. Peanut butter is the most requested item, as it is nutritious and requires no refrigeration. The Project’s goal this year is to produce one million jars of peanut butter for worldwide food banks and Feed America programs.
