HOW IT MAKES A DIFFERENCE

For someone who might otherwise not have all the food they need, the gift of a simple sandwich can provide both necessary nutrients and also a dose of comfort. By taking the time to make a few peanut butter & jelly's, you'll be sharing one of your favorite foods with neighbors who will greatly benefit from your kindness.

DESCRIPTION

Throw together a few of the childhood staple - peanut butter & jelly - and spread some love to neighbors who are hungry. This quick and easy task can mean nutrition for someone who might otherwise go without lunch today. Simple ingredients and a simple gesture of kindness can mean a whole lot more to the person who gets to enjoy your efforts on the other side.


ITEMS NEEDED

1. A loaf of white bread

2. Jar of peanut butter

3. Jar of jam or jelly
