Peanut Butter (PB) and jam sandwiches are by far my favourite quick snack as it reminds me of my childhood.
I was one of the lucky kids to have peanut butter jars sitting in the kitchen cabinet. To be honest, I always thought it was just normal to open the cabinet and see a jar of PB sitting there next to the baked beans or honey jars or chocolates or… ok you get the point. …I didn’t even think twice about it.
I soon learnt that this was NOT the norm for everyone.
Food insecurity seems to be a major problem here in the UK as well as in our sister country of Canada. In Toronto for example, many people can’t afford to keep up with bills let alone purchase PB for the family, so they often have to rely on the great work of local food banks to help provide them with PB.
PB is a superfood and such a great source of protein and fibre and is a nutritious option for many diet choices, so I was extremely pleased to see Athletic Eatery hosting the Great Canadian PB Drive in Toronto!
Athletic Eatery is an athletic promotion company who focus on social outreach in the athletic community. They have partnered with a number of dynamic, socially conscious businesses in the GTA to help prevent hunger and food insecurity in their beautiful city of Toronto.
