Giving Back: Every Spoonful Counts!

Giving Back: Every Spoonful Counts!

Peanut Butter & Co. is on a mission to deliver products that taste good, feel good, and do good, not only for our customers but also for our community. In 2019, we were able to donate over 3,000 jars, squeeze packs, and dipping cups of peanut butter to help organizations that help to feed the hungry, and supported events that aim to fund research for curing diseases.

Donations to food banks and pantries help these foundations improve their communities by providing resources to help end food insecurity. Donations to events helped to provide no-cost snacks to participants and reduce costs associated with hosting fundraisers, ensuring that the money raised can go directly where it is needed most.
