Corporate Works of Mercy, founded by St. Romain Oil & Y-Not Stop, has delivered 16,100 jars of Peanut Butter to the Food Bank of Central Louisiana, located in Alexandria.
Since 2013, Corporate Works of Mercy Foundation's annual Y-Not STOP Hunger Drive raises awareness, funds and peanut butter for local families in need in partnership with food banks.
The goal of Corporate Works of Mercy's efforts is to aid local people in the communities that the Y-Not Stop stores serve. The Food Bank of Central Louisiana serves Avoyelles, Rapides & Catahoula parishes, where majority of Y-Not Stop stores are located. The peanut butter donation will be used to support the Food Bank’s Children’s Back Pack Program and Adopt A Senior Program.

We would like to offer a special thanks to Sam and the team at Harvest Foods of Marksville for coordinating our massive order of 27 pallets of peanut butter, as they have graciously done over the last several years.
