Success Stories


Welcome to the official website of Prescott Community Cupboard Food Bank – a leading non-profit organization striving to make a positive impact in our community. With our dedicated volunteers and strong community support, we are able to turn recalled peanut butter into valuable water donations for those in need.

Community and Society - Philanthropy

Prescott Community Cupboard Food Bank operates under the category of Community and Society - Philanthropy. We firmly believe in the power of giving back to the community. Our mission is to alleviate hunger and provide basic necessities to individuals and families facing food insecurity. By focusing on philanthropy, we aim to promote a compassionate society where no one goes hungry.

Recalled Peanut Butter Turned into Water Donations

In recent times, there were instances of peanut butter recalls due to safety concerns. At Prescott Community Cupboard Food Bank, we believe in turning challenges into opportunities. Our dedicated volunteers and staff worked tirelessly to repurpose the recalled peanut butter and convert it into life-saving water donations.

Supporting the Local Community

The initiative to turn recalled peanut butter into water donations not only helps address hunger but also provides a sustainable solution that benefits the local community. By transforming a potential waste product into a valuable resource, we minimize environmental impact while maximizing our impact on the lives of those in need.

Collaboration with Partner Organizations

Prescott Community Cupboard Food Bank has partnered with local businesses, organizations, and volunteers who wholeheartedly support our mission. Together, we have established a comprehensive and efficient process to convert the recalled peanut butter into clean drinking water, ensuring the highest quality and safety standards are met.

How It Works

Our process begins with the careful collection and inspection of recalled peanut butter. Trained volunteers assess the quality and safety of each donated batch, ensuring that only suitable products are used in the transformation process. Any unsuitable or expired items are responsibly disposed of.

Conversion Process

Once the suitable peanut butter is identified, it gets processed in our dedicated facilities. Our specialized machinery separates the components, extracting the oil and leaving behind the solid peanut residue. This residue is then processed further to create nutrient-rich animal feed, reducing food waste even further.

Water Purification

The extracted oil from the peanut butter holds immense potential for water purification. Through various refining techniques, we convert the oil into a filtering agent that helps remove impurities from water sources. This process ensures safe and clean drinking water for communities facing water scarcity.

The Impact We Make

By partnering with local organizations, businesses, and volunteers, Prescott Community Cupboard Food Bank has successfully converted tons of recalled peanut butter into thousands of gallons of clean water. These water donations are distributed to vulnerable populations, disaster-affected areas, and communities lacking access to clean drinking water.

Community Outreach Programs

In addition to water donations, Prescott Community Cupboard Food Bank actively participates in community outreach programs. We conduct educational workshops to raise awareness about food waste, promote sustainable practices, and empower individuals to make a positive change within their communities.

Engaging Volunteers

Volunteers play a crucial role in our operations. We offer various volunteer opportunities, allowing individuals from all walks of life to contribute their time and skills towards our cause. Through their collective efforts, we can continue to turn recalled peanut butter into valuable water donations, creating a significant impact in the lives of those in need.
