Shopping, Classes, and More for Enthusiasts

PB & Jelly for a Good Cause

Peanut Butter and JellySenior resident assistants at the CIA recently organized almost 100 students to team with them to make peanut butter and jelly sandwiches for a New York soup kitchen.

Assembly-line tables were set up in The Egg student dining venue, and in less than an hour the students and RAs had made and wrapped more than 3,000 sandwiches. The next morning, all that PB&J headed to New York City and the sandwiches were presented to The Bowery Mission in lower Manhattan.

The food for this good cause was donated to the CIA by J.M. Smucker Company (Jif peanut butter and Smucker's jelly) and Bimbo Bakeries USA (Sara Lee bread).
