On Thursday January 15th, Mosaic Family Services helped Which Wich® kick off their new global initiative at their 2015 Leap Spreading Party. Hundreds of volunteers gathered at the Sheraton Dallas Hotel to break the World Record of most peanut butter and jelly sandwiches made in a single hour. The previous record stood at 22,000 PB&J’s and with the help of Mosaic, various local nonprofits and other community volunteers, the group broke the record by making 26,710 sandwiches. This feat was all apart of Which Wich’s Project PB&J®, where they hope to donate food to thousands in need across the world.
Project PB&J was started by Which Wich founders, Jeff and Courtney Sinelli, under the simple belief that a peanut butter and jelly sandwich could change the world. The basic concept is that for every PB&J purchased, Which Wich will donate a sandwich to someone in the community. Although simple, Project PB&J is helping to fight hunger that affects thousands in the DFW area. Also, the PB&J reserve is used to feed those in need during natural disasters and times of significant distress.
Participating in Project PB&J is just as simple as its founding notion. First, one can either buy a PB&J in-store at a participating Which Wich or one can go online and gift a selected number peanut butter and jelly sandwiches to be donated to the local community. Mosaic is proud to support Project PB&J in its effort to fight global hunger and would also like to thank Which Wich for donating a large portion of sandwiches from Thursday’s Spreading Party to our Mosaic House. Mosaic House will be given frequent donations from Project PB&J throughout the year to help feed our many human trafficking and domestic violence survivors.
