Iron County Care and Share encourages the donation of peanut butter. Do you know why?
If you spend five dollars and buy five cans of soup, your donation feeds one person, one time per day, for five days. Now, spend the same five dollars on peanut butter and bread, and your donation feeds two or three people once a day for five days. Not only are you providing more meals, but you are also providing more protein.
The average serving (1 cup) of tomato soup has 2g of protein and just 1 tablespoons of peanut butter packs 8g.
