If you walk down the residential street of Flora Avenue, you might just stroll past the headquarters of a global charity that is saving thousands of lives.
Last March, Patch profiled Mark and Mardi Manary, a Maplewood couple who run Project Peanut Butter to help save the lives of children in Africa. Their organization produces and distributes peanut butter paste, which is a vitamin-fortified food that allows parents from impoverished and rural villages to treat their ill children at home.
Manary most recently was profiled by The St. Louis Beacon in a March 5 article. The in-depth profile examines Manary's past, and what steps led him to begin his own charity.
