FoodMaxx, Lucky and Save Mart rounding-up Peanut Butter to stock-up Shelves at Local Food Banks

Modesto Calif. – FoodMaxx, Lucky and Save Mart stores are proud to announce its fifth annual Peanut Butter Roundup. This signature event of The Save Mart Companies aims to stock-up the shelves of our local food banks right as summer starts and thousands of children across the state lose their school lunch program. This May our family of stores will offer Jif, Adams, Skippy and Sunny Select peanut butters specials such as a Buy One/Get One—making it easy for shoppers to Buy One and Give One in any of our stores.

“Peanut butter is a great donation,” expressed Stacia Levenfeld, Executive Director of Public Affairs for The Save Mart Companies. “It is nutritious, high in protein, shelf-stable and kids love it! Here at Save Mart Companies, we are dedicated to helping our communities thrive and live healthy lifestyles. We are proud to partner with local food banks.”

Save Mart customers can buy one jar of peanut butter and get a second jar free to donate in barrels located at stores beginning May 9. Both peanut butter jars must be the same brand; Sunny Select, Jiff and Adams peanut butter brands are participating this year’s Peanut Butter Roundup. Save Mart stores will also offer customers the option to round up their grocery bill to the nearest dollar and all change goes to their local food bank. This is the second year in a row the “round up” feature is available at the cash register.

Last year, Save Mart and Lucky stores in both Northern Nevada and California, donated $10,000 and collected 10 tons of peanut butter … that’s enough to make a quarter-million sandwiches. That’s a lot of happy kids and full tummies!

Take advantage of the Buy One/Give One promotion, peanut butter sale, or round up your next grocery bill now until May 29th at your neighborhood Save Mart grocery stores.
