America's Peanut Farmers

COVID-19: What You Can Do

covidThe American Peanut Council fully supports the U.S. peanut industry as it continues to deliver safe, nutritious products to the world during this difficult time.  Manufacturers are working hard to ensure the health and safety of employees while continuing to maintain production and shipment of healthy and nutritious products. 

Peanuts and Peanut Products are Plentiful

Shelling, processing, and production facilities continue to put protocols in place in order to maintain operations and provide grocery stores and other food outlets with the peanut products consumers need and want.  Food production is critical and the American peanut industry takes these responsibilities very seriously. The nation’s leading health and food and agriculture agencies are also working with industry to ensure a safe and stable food supply.

What you can do

As more and more Americans face temporary economic instability, there will be increased demand for nutritious, economical protein-rich foods at food banks and other community food distribution points. In fact, peanut butter is consistently one of the most requested items at food banks.

Unfortunately, social distancing may make in-person, product donation drop offs challenging in some areas, so, for those who want to help, we ask that you make a donation at Peanut Proud, a non-profit industry organization dedicated to humanitarian efforts. Together, we can help those in our communities who have become food insecure because of the impact of COVID-19. Thank you in advance for your donation.
