Peanut Butter and Jelly Sandwich Day

UnitedHealthcare’s “whole person” approach to care means understanding how each individual’s circumstances in life impacts their health and care.  That’s why a group of UnitedHealthcare employees got together to make 4,000 peanut butter and jelly sandwiches that would be delivered by St. Francis Food Pantries & Shelters to more than forty non-profit food pantries, soup kitchens, safe havens, drop In centers and shelters across New York City.

The St. Francis Food Pantries & Shelters is a network of food and service programs that provide a wide range of services to feed, clothe, counsel, and alleviate physical and emotional hunger in a dignified and supportive manner.  The St. Francis Food Pantries & Shelters takes a comprehensive approach in providing and supporting services that eradicate not only hunger, but the structural causes of hunger. The organization supports a network of charitable programs that provide a broad range of services for those in need, including the provision of food serving over 1.2 million meals each year.

Not only did our UnitedHealthcare employees make 4,000 peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, they also learned a few things in the process.  For example, they learned that the trick to making the best PBJ sandwich is to put peanut butter on both sides of the bread and the jelly in between.  They were also proud of the fact that not only did they make 4,000 PBJ sandwiches for children and families in need across NYC, UnitedHealthcare also donated one dollar to St. Francis Food Pantries & Shelters for every sandwich made.

At UnitedHealthcare we know that make a meaningful contribution to health, we must work within the communities where we live and work. We thank St. Francis Food Pantries & Shelters and their team of PBJ experts for providing us an opportunity to do just that!
