Three Spokane businesses team up to fight summer hunger

SPOKANE, Wash. - Three local businesses teamed up to ensure kids have lunches this summer.

Gus Johnson Ford, Trading Company Stores and Franz Bakery got together to launch a Peanut Butter Challenge. From June 5th to June 13th Trading Company customers donated 133 jars of peanut butter to Second Harvest.

Gus Johnson and Trading Company both matched the peanut butter donations while Franz Bread matched the peanut butter with their bread.

In the end, 399 jars of peanut butter and 133 loaves of bread were donated to Second Harvest to make the sandwiches complete.

Second Harvest will be responsible for distributing the collected food as part of their Summer Lunch Program.

All three businesses partnered up in conjunction with Ford's national Ford Feeds Kids program.
