“In honor of March being National Peanut Month, the Virginia Peanut Board and Virginia Peanut Growers Association teamed with PLANTERS, a Kraft Foods brand, and Peanut Proud to contribute peanut butter to the Federation of Virginia Food Banks, a partner state association of Feeding America.

This is the second year in a row that PLANTERS and Virginia’s peanut growers have contributed 2 pallets each (total of 5,760 jars) to kick off the March celebration. This year the donation increased significantly with a 7 pallet (10,080 jars) contribution from Peanut Proud. Peanut Proud, based in Blakely, GA, is an industry sponsored charitable organization that reacts to existing needs with peanut butter donations, whether it be for food banks in the peanut growing states or disaster relief.

The Federation will take this donation and split it among the 7 regional facilities located throughout Virginia, making the contribution reach across the state.

The growers of Virginia sincerely appreciate the cooperation and charity of PLANTERS and Peanut Proud in this effort.”
