SAN ANTONIO – You know football season is around the corner when the annual Peanut Butter Bowl holds its press conference.
A number of football coaches from around the San Antonio area gathered on Saturday at Heroes Stadium to talk about the 10-game event dedicated to fighting food insecurity. The goal for the food drive is simple: encourage football fans and the community at large to battle chronic hunger by collecting peanut butter. Four of the 10 games on this year’s expanded schedule are on this coming Friday night. This is the second year that the event has expanded past the opening week of the season. All told 20 different teams are participating in this year’s event, and they want to surpass the 23,000 jars of peanut butter donated last year. The school who donates the most jars of peanut butter will be awarded the Peanut Butter Bowl Champions Cup.
