The PB&J Fund envisions a Charlottesville where all community members are strengthened by and have access to affordable, healthful food.
The PB&J Fund empowers children and families through culinary and nutritional education, while improving access to affordable, healthful food for under-resourced community members.
By working with community partners to provide healthy meals and teach cooking habits, The PB&J Fund aims to address kids’ nutritional needs at each stage of development. The PB&J Fund was created in the belief that a healthy diet should be easily accessible to all kids, just like the most famous and basic childhood food of peanut butter and jelly.
