Peanut Proud program makes a difference in Oklahoma disasters

Shortly after a devastating tornado struck the town of Moore, Okla., last spring the peanut industry swung into action to move supplies of peanut butter to help feed victims of the storm. Within 10 days after the tornado occurred – and while another tornado struck a nearby area of Oklahoma – the industry delivered 60,000 jars of peanut butter through its Peanut Proud program. Gregg Grimsley, chairman of Peanut Proud, discussed the operation during the Southern Peanut Growers Conference in Panama City, Fla., on July 19.
