In an effort to fight hunger in Rochester, students representing various faith communities at Rochester Institute of Technology will be making and delivering nearly 2,000 sandwiches to local food kitchens and community centers, May 6-7.
Over a two-day period, students will prepare peanut butter and jelly sandwiches for 11 local community service organizations and food kitchens, including Friendship NurseryCenter. Food donations for the third annual PB Jam will be provided by Genesee Valley Foodlink and Wegmans. The students will create a "sandwich assembly line" from 11 a.m.- to 2 p.m., Tuesday, May 6, and Wednesday, May 7, in the lobby of the Student Alumni Union.
Originally a program sponsored by Jewish Hillel, PB Jam is being joined by all members of the Interfaith Center. In addition, classes, special interest groups, fraternities, as well as other clubs will take turns making and delivering sandwiches.
