We are proud to report that this year’s annual Peanut Butter & Jelly Drive to benefit FeedMoreWNY was our most successful year to date! In the spirit of playful competition, two teams were formed to see who would donate the most! In the end, it was an extremely close match up, with Team Peanut Butter narrowly beating Team Jelly, 377 jars to 366 jars!

Collectively, the company was able to gather 743 jars of peanut butter and jelly for donation to FeedMore of WNY. That adds up to a whopping 1,119 lbs of PB&J! Thank you to everyone who contributed in making this our most successful year yet. And a special thank you to the Community Outreach Committee for organizing this opportunity to give back to the community.
