ALBANY, GA (WALB) - The American Peanut Council has started work to help fight the world hunger problem.

The Council has initiated contacts with all state and federal government agencies to buy, barter, or donate peanuts

and peanut butter to help feed the hungry in America and around the world.

The peanut industry produced a record two and a half million ton crop this year. They want to make sure it helps people in danger of malnutrition.

American Peanut Council Board Member Richard Barnhill  "knowing that peanut butter is a good source of protein and nutrition, and you don't have to refrigerate it. We thought that would be a great product."

The American Peanut Council is made up of all areas of the peanut industry, from growers to manufacturers, and have already started contacting government agencies to provide their products and services.
