Mr. Peanut is in town, providing some assistance Thursday at Meals on Wheels in Duluth.

Hormel Foods recently acquired Planters Peanuts. They’re getting the word out by giving donations to Minnesota organizations that have made a positive difference this past year. Meals on Wheels is one of the organizations Hormel is highlighting, is Meals on Wheels.

"Our average client is mid to late 70’s, widowed females," says Kathie Irish, the Director of Senior Nutrition Services at AEOA. "She struggles throughout the year with what she’s going to do as far as expenses, food bills, heating bills, prescription bills. Getting this check will mean additional help with rising food costs."

That check was written out for $10,000 to Meals on Wheels in Duluth. Mr. Peanut was the one to present the giant check, and ride along on a Meals on Wheels route.

"It’s so incredible to give back and uplift communities through the year," said Danny Holton, Mr. Peanut’s sidekick.
