Bainbridge students celebrate PB&J day

BAINBRIDGE, GA (WALB) - What better way to celebrate peanut butter and jelly day then to eat some peanut butter made right here in Georgia!

Students in Bainbridge got to learn how peanuts are harvested while enjoying some delicious snacks.

They also got a visit from a local peanut farmer.

He said it's important for kids to know where exactly their food is coming from.

"I think they are excited to know where their food comes from, A lot of them were dressed like farmers today and us farmers are getting older so we need a lot of them," Andy Bell, Peanut Farmer.

Bell read a new book called PBJ HOORAY to the class.

The book is now on display at the school library for kids to check out.
