Mountain Meadows Food Processing Solves Big Problem
Almost 3 years ago BB4CK was advised by school partners that we could no longer delivery lunches that included any peanut products. This eliminated an important source of nutrition and some popular items on our menu. We have searched for alternatives that offered the same kind of nutrition and that would be received well by the kids that we serve.
Mountain Meadows produces a one of a kind product known as NoNuts Golden Peabutter. The best tasting alternative to peanut butter! No Nuts Pea Butter is completely gluten, nut and peanut free! It is also high in protein, an excellent and nutritious spread, and is ideal for school lunches (especially for schools restricting peanut and tree nut products).
Produced in a totally nut free facility
No Trans Fats
Low in Saturated Fats
No Salt Added
A source of Omega 3 polyunsaturated fatty acids
Excellent Shelf Life
Tasty and Nutritious
With the generous assistance of Norm and Caryll Carruthers, the owners of Mountain Meadows, we ran a pilot program in May and June 2009. Everything about the product was perfect. Volunteers found it easy to use, schools accepted the nut free product and most importantly the kids loved it. We received rave reviews from all the participating schools and have decided to add peabutter and jam andwiches and peabutter snacks to our menu for the upcoming school year.
We are grateful to Mountain Meadows for their assistance and look forward to a long partnership feeding kids.
