Peanut Butter Cannery Honored
The Association of Fundraising Professionals honored the Church on November 15 with its Outstanding Community Service Organization Award for the Church’s peanut butter cannery in Houston, which partners with local businesses and community organizations to provide peanut butter to many food banks each year. Elder Gifford Nielsen, an Area Seventy, accepted the award on behalf of the Church.
The Church expanded the cannery in 2010 to allow for more production. In 2012 the cannery supplied 220,000 jars to the food banks.
