Peanut butter and jelly -- Postmasters come together to battle hunger

The two Postmasters might be on the opposite side of the sandwich, but they came together to fight hunger.

The story of two postmasters from Florida is an interesting one, since the two challenged each other to a PBJ duel.Alva, FL, OIC RuthE Von Gunten-Persad and Lehigh, FL, OIC Mark Pi called on their communities to help in the fight.

They collected peanut butter and jelly to give away to local food banks to help stave off childhood hunger pangs.

The contest ended with the Alva office leading Lehigh. Between the two offices, they collected more than 2,500 pounds of peanut butter and jelly.
The two agreed that the loser has to eat two PB&J sandwiches in two minutes. Mark Pi graciously came to Alva and accepted the defeat by eating his sandwiches.
