Food Bank Donations Sought For Summer
Peanut butter

The annual Peanut Butter Roundup is officially underway throughout the Central Valley.

Peanut Butter Roundup is The Save Mart Companies signature annual campaign that aims to stock-up the shelves of local food banks right as summer starts and thousands of children across the state lose access to their school lunch programs. This May, all Save Mart stores will offer a special promotion on a select variety of Jif peanut butter – making it easy for shoppers to Buy One and Give One in any of their stores.

“Peanut butter is a great donation,” expressed Stacia Levenfeld, Executive Director of Public Affairs for The Save Mart Companies. “It is nutritious, high in protein, shelf-stable and kids love it! Here at The Save Mart Companies, we are dedicated to helping our communities thrive and live healthy lifestyles. We are proud to partner with the local food banks in our communities.”

Continuing through Tuesday, May 14, Save Mart customers can buy one jar of peanut butter and get a second jar free to donate in food bank branded barrels located at stores. Last year, Save Mart and Lucky stores in both Northern Nevada and California collected 15 tons of peanut butter … enough to make over a quarter-million sandwiches.
