San Diego Food BankSpotlight Charity

San Diego Food Bank Peanut Butter Drive

Peanut butter is the #1 food donated to food banks in the U.S.

And for good reason. Peanut Butter is a Superfood with seven grams of protein in one serving (more than any other nut) and 30 nutrients and phytonutrients. If you want to pack a punch of essential nutrients in one donation to feed the hungry, peanut butter is a great choice. Crunchy or smooth, any type will be a welcome donation.
