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 provided to the two food pantries in Mesquite, Sharing Life Community Outreach and Mesquite Social Services, to redistribute within the Mesquite community.
Financial contributions can be made year-round through the City of Mesquite's Donations webpage.
