National Peanut Butter Lover's Month

Peanut butter is an excellent source of zinc, iron and potassium... and of course is so high in protein. 

Food pantries are always in need of restocking their shelves of peanut butter for their clients. This month... pick up some extra jars of PB for a food cupboard near you!
