The donation was part of the hunger program created by the makers of SKIPPY® peanut butter in 2018. The program involves a partnership between Hormel Foods and grocery retailers across the country and is part of the company’s philanthropic efforts that focus on hunger and education.
The peanut butter – enough to make more than 80,000 peanut butter sandwiches* – was donated at the Jacobs & Cushman San Diego Food Bank Holiday Food Drive at Von’s Murphy Canyon location.
“Hormel Foods is proud to partner with Vons to support hunger-relief efforts in the communities served by its stores,” said Aly Sill, brand manager at Hormel Foods. “The SKIPPY® peanut butter hunger program highlights our long-standing relationship with Vons, and we are honored to work together to contribute to those in need.”
“We are humbled and appreciative of our partnership with Hormel Foods and the SKIPPY® brand and for this donation of 5,300 jars of peanut butter to the San Diego Food Bank,” said Shane Dorcheus, president of Albertsons Companies Southern California Division. “We hope this donation will help our local families in most need during this holiday season.”
