pbj revolution is a movement to feed as many people in need as possible with simple, delicious pbj sandwiches. I was excited to hear about such a great cause which was easy to do.
So I got in touch with the organizers to learn a little more about this great cause. It started of with three friends who were talking and thought it would be nice to hand out pb&j sandwiches as they were out and about in their communities.
“Talking amongst ourselves we thought it would be cool if others started joining in to fight hunger… like a revolution, hence the name,” said one of the organizers of the group.
The organizers and other individuals who passed out the sandwiches had a great experience and said that people receiving the sandwiches were very appreciative. The goal of this revolution is not to start a trend or get recognition but we want to get the message out, said one of the organizers. The pbj revolution has a Facebook page in which the organizers tell participants to make pbj sandwiches pair them with a water bottle and a napkin and find people who need them.
“We figured we could reach a lot of people in a lot of cities by starting a FB page, rather than just focusing on our own cities. Passing out sandwiches is something you can do alone or with others, so no one city needs a large number of people to get started,” said one of the organizers.
She added that there are no requirements. “We are trying to trigger some action, not dictate it. Loading pictures and posting to the page, though, will hopefully generate excitement and encourage action so we do encourage people to do so. Our goal is to feed as many people as we can, with something simple, affordable and quick.”
I couldn’t agree more and I look forward to having my kids help me in making and passing out these sandwiches. Join the pbj revolution here
