Devon Energy collects nearly 800 pounds of nut butter for SE Texas food bank

(Devon employees (L to R) Kim Davis, JP Jackson, Denise Becker, Kris Crenshaw and Michael Zappe delivered nut butter to the Food Bank of Golden Crescent.)

Devon Energy employees rallied together to donate 786 pounds of nut butter to the Food Bank of the Golden Crescent, Texas. The organization serves children, families and seniors in 11 southeastern Texas counties.  

“Nut butter is one of our most in-demand items because it’s versatile and nutritious, as well as shelf stable,” said Robin Cadle, CEO of the Food Bank of the Golden Crescent. “However, it’s also fairly pricey, so our supply is often low. This donation from Devon will make a huge difference to the people in our area who are struggling with hunger this holiday season.”  

Michael Zappe, Devon superintendent of product operations, said the company is committed to serving its neighbors.  

“The Food Bank of the Golden Crescent does fantastic work in helping feed local families in need, and we’re proud to support their efforts,” Zappe said. “We hope this donation will allow many parents to breathe a little easier this winter.”
