(March 22, 2023) The Alabama Peanut Producers Association (APPA) partnered with Alabama Ag Credit, First South Farm Credit, Autauga County Famers Federation and Dallas County Farmers Federation to donate Peanut Proud peanut butter to the communities in Dallas and Autauga counties devastated by tornadoes in January 2023. While recovery efforts continue in the areas affected by the tornadoes, there are families still displaced from their homes. The peanut butter will provide these families with a much-needed nutritious food source that doesn’t have to be refrigerated and has a long shelf life.

“Peanut butter is the perfect disaster food,”

said Harold Gaines, an Autauga County peanut farmer. “It is non-perishable and provides nutrients in one perfect bite.”

The peanut butter was delivered on Thursday, March 16, 2023 to the Autauga Interfaith Care Center in Prattville, Alabama, and the Selma Area Food Bank in Selma, Alabama. Each location received four pallets of Peanut Proud peanut butter. That’s a total of 11,530 pounds of peanut butter – enough to make 161,280 peanut butter sandwiches!

Special thanks to Southern Ag Carriers for delivering the peanut butter to Prattville and Selma.
