Peanut Butter Parking Wrap-Up

Posted October 3, 2019, by Lauren Leija


Campus Services held the fifth annual Peanut Butter Parking Campaign this September in collaboration with the Student Government Association (SGA), the San Antonio Food Bank, and the Roadrunner Pantry. Thanks to generous donations from the campus community, Campus Services collected 1,083.50 pounds of peanut butter!

More about the Peanut Butter Parking Campaign

During the Peanut Butter Parking campaign, customers could donate peanut butter to pay eligible parking citation(s) issued from September 3-11, 2019. Eligible citations included Parking Without a Valid Permit ($25), Parking Without a Proper Permit ($50), and Parking Without a Valid Permit ($100). Citations valued at $25 and $50 required a donation of 40 oz. of peanut butter or more, and $100 citations required a donation of 80 oz. or more. Campus Services welcomed donations without citations.

Who Benefits from the Donations?

Donations of peanut butter stacked high on top of a table.

Both the San Antonio Food Bank and the Roadrunner Pantry received contributions from the Peanut Butter Parking Campaign. The Roadrunner Pantry helps students reach their full academic and personal potential, by providing access to healthy and nutritious foods. The San Antonio Food Bank works to end hunger for those in San Antonio and Southwest Texas.

Giving Back to the Community

Any community can have a hidden issue of food insecurity. Your donations will help fight hunger in our local and campus communities. Thank you for your contributions!
