Run for Project Peanut Butter! Project Peanut Butter is a humanitarian project focused in Malawi, a country in Southeast Africa. Using a peanut-based Ready to Use Therapeutic Food (RUTF), this project has had an enormous impact on infant mortality rates. The peanut butter is energy rich, lipid based and is produced at a locally. The infants can then eat this nutrient rich food at home where they have a much better recovery than if they were put in a hospital.
The Cal Undergraduate Public Health Coalition (Cal UPHC) strives to provide opportunities for students to gain R.E.A.L experience in the field of public health through Research, Experience, Action and Leadership. We, the International Health Committee of Cal UPHC, are hosting a 5K Nutty Run/Walk to raise awareness for global malnutrition by donating proceeds to Project Peanut Butter, an organization dedicated to lower infant mortality rates in Malawi through a highly nutritious peanut paste.Please see https://sites.google.com/site/caluphcsite/the-nutty-run for more information.
