Peanut Butter for the Hungry

SUMMARY

Peanut Butter for the Hungry is a humanitarian initiative of the U.S. peanut industry to help malnourished children around the world.

ESTIMATED COST: $0
LOCATION(S): General

We are trying to raise funds to really make an impact in helping the severely malnourished around the world. Our goals for the initiative are:

1. Provide local infrastructure and build capacity in the "hungry" region, by encouraging the development of local production facitlities in the countries where the product is being used;

2. Provide technical support for local manufacturers in such areas as food safety, manufacturing processing, etc.

3. Through a partnership with the Univ. of Georgia CRSP Program, provide assistance to famres in needy regions who are growoing peanuts, as a long term solution for sustainability.

Peanuts are a nutritious protein-rich product that children love to eat. Please visit our website for more information on our program and the projects we are working on at: www.peanutbutterforthehungry.org
