PB & Jelly Deli Feeds the Burg and Those in Need

New food truck aims to feed the entire St. Pete Community.

There’s a new food truck in town and it aims to do more than just feed its excited customers. The PB & Jelly Deli Food Truck will soon make its debut in the Tampa Bay area. Similar to TOMS, the food truck will operated on a 1 for 1 basis. They will donate a sandwich to those in need each time a sandwich is bought.

This PB & J is far from ordinary.

PB and Jelly Deli isn’t not serving your average sandwich. This food truck is turning the classic go-to lunch snack up a notch. They’re experimenting with pumpkin spice cashew butter, salted caramel peanut butter and chocolate chunk almond butter. Residents will get a chance to sample the savory goodness of their sandwiches during Localtopia on February 4 in Williams Park as the PB and Jelly Deli joins the fantastic Food Truck Rally Alley roster.

The food truck will do more than just feed its customers.

The rising popularity of food trucks in St. Pete has paved the way for fun, innovative concepts to find the perfect segue into the St. Pete community. We’re glad to see a new culinary hotspot dedicate its operations to helping those in need.

They’re giving those in need a chance to re-enter the workforce.

Hungry for a Day partnered with Blake Clark back in May of 2016 to launch the PB and Jelly Deli. After rounds of fundraising, it looks like the concept is ready to hit the road. Beyond donating sandwiches to the homeless, part of PB & Jelly Deli’s staff will be covered by someone attempting to re-enter the workforce. You can stay updated on where they’ll pop up by following them on Twitter, Instagram and their website.
