Peanut Butter Drive Aims To Help Kids This Summer
PB pix

FoodMaxx, Lucky and Save Mart stores are in the midst of its fifth annual Peanut Butter Roundup. This signature event of The Save Mart Companies aims to stock-up the shelves of local food banks right as summer starts and thousands of children across the state lose their school lunch program. Throughout this month, stores will offer Jif, Adams, Skippy and Sunny Select peanut butters specials such as a Buy One/Get One – making it easy for shoppers to Buy One and Give One in any of the Save Mart 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 Save Mart Companies, we are dedicated to helping our communities thrive and live healthy lifestyles. We are proud to partner with local food banks.”

Save Mart and Lucky customers can buy one jar of peanut butter and get a second jar free to donate in barrels located at local stores. Both peanut butter jars must be the same brand: Sunny Select, Jif, Adams and Skippy peanut butter brands are participating in this year’s Peanut Butter Roundup. Save Mart and Lucky stores will also offer customers the option to round up their grocery bill to the nearest dollar and all change goes to their local food bank. Last year Save Mart and Lucky stores donated nearly $10,000 company-wide. This is the second year in a row the “round up” feature is available at the cash register.

FoodMaxx customers can buy Sunny Select, Jif, Adams and Skippy peanut butter at as low as $1.99 a jar to donate to local food banks. Last year, Save Mart and Lucky stores in both Northern Nevada and California, donated $10,000 and collected 10 tons of peanut butter … enough to make a quarter-million sandwiches. The drive continues until Tuesday, May 29.
