Back to Tools for Schools

Summer is coming to an end and local schools are back in session. That means our Tools for Schools program is kicking it into high gear. For over 20 years the program has donated more than $14 million in educational equipment to local schools, and we are excited to add $400,000 to the total this year. We understand how vital it is for our 1,600+ participating schools to have the proper resources to help their students strive to be successful.

Over the years, schools have used their share of the total funds to receive a range of items. From learning essentials like a range of art and creativity supplies to gym equipment like a new activity parachute.

This year we are hoping for even greater results! Sign up now for Tools for Schools to support your school and help it earn its share of $400,000 in educational equipment when you shop thru Dec. 31st!  Earn 2x stars when you create an online AdvantEdge Rewards account.s

Here’s to another school year!

Crustless Sandwiches 2020 with logo

KCC Crustless Sandwich Pockets

by Jodie Fitz

OPTION 1:

2 slices of honey wheat bread

2 tablespoons PICS Peanut butter

1 tablespoon PICS Honey

1 Banana

PICS Cinnamon

Cut the bread slices with a large circle cookie cutter to create circular shapes.

Stir the peanut butter and honey together.  Spread it on one side of each of the circles. 

Cut half of the banana into thin slices.  Add several slices onto one side of the peanut butter and sprinkle a light coat of cinnamon on top of the banana pieces.

Add the other piece of bread to create a sandwich.

Using a fork, press around the edges of the circle so that it forms a sandwich pocket.

 

OPTION 2:

2 tablespoons PICS vegetable cream cheese

1 tablespoon of ranch dressing

Cucumber, sliced thin

Cut the bread slices with a large circle cookie cutter to create circular shapes.

Stir the cream cheese and ranch dressing together.  Spread it on one side of each of the circles. 

Add the cucumber slices to one side.

Add the other piece of bread to create a sandwich.

Using a fork, press around the edges of the circle so that it forms a sandwich pocket.

More thoughts:

PICS Vegetable Cream Cheese can be located near the bagels at your local Price Chopper/Market 32 Stores.

Ranch Dressing:  Use your favorite.  My personal favorite is the avocado ranch dressing located in the produce aisle at Price Chopper/Market 32 Supermarkets.
