Project PB&J

Project PB&J® was started to bring comfort and comfort food to those in the world who need it; to let them know someone out there cares. From those affected by natural disasters to local organizations, Project PB&J is trying to bring a smile to the face of those in need and a meal to their belly.

Project PB&J® believes that a simple peanut butter and jelly sandwich can change the world. Their belief was put into action on Friday, May 15th when they teamed with MEG (Marketing Executives Group) to make over 3,000 sandwiches for The Salvation Army. Harbor Light Center, Two Are Better Than One and Chicago Kroc Center received 1,000 sandwiches each, to help feed those in need. Our deepest thanks to Project PB&J and to Charles Ballard and the wonderful MEG team for helping us reach out to those in need of kindness.
