Jewel-Osco in Itasca is joining Hormel Foods in donating 33,122 jars of Skippy peanut butter to Northern Illinois Food Bank in Geneva.

The peanut butter, enough to make more than 500,000 sandwiches, arrived at the food bank on Wednesday. The donation will support the food bank's mission to lead the Northern Illinois community in solving hunger by providing nutritious meals to those in need in the area.

The donation is part of the hunger program created by the makers of Skippy peanut butter in 2018. The program involves a partnership between Hormel Foods and grocery retailers across the country and is part of the company's philanthropic efforts focused on hunger and education.

"The Skippy hunger program highlights our long-standing relationship with Jewel-Osco, and we are honored to work together to contribute to those in need," said Aly Sill, brand manager at Hormel Foods.

"We are very excited to work with Hormel Foods and the Skippy brand to donate more than 33,000 jars of peanut butter to address the problem of child hunger in the greater Chicagoland area," said Jewel-Osco President Paul Gossett. "We hope this donation will help make the holidays a little more enjoyable for individuals and families in need."
