Backpack Pals is a program of the Peanut Butter Project, which was founded in 2012 as a response to a high need for peanut butter at local food pantries.

Peanut Butter Project works to improve individual and group donations of priority staples to food pantries and works to coordinate the Backpack Pals program with partnering groups and individual donors.
