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

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."
