AUGUSTA, GA (WFXG) -

Thanks to a film project about peanuts, Golden Harvest Food Bank has more than 1,000 jars of peanut butter to help feed local people.

The documentary "Growing Peanut Butter" will show the life of peanut butter, from the field to your table.

"It's just all around one of the most healthy, nutritious foods out there," said Joseph Barnhart, the show's producer. "You know, long shelf life, it tastes good of course, almost everybody in the world loves it."

The film's producer partnered with a peanut butter manufacturer to share his passion for the nut with folks right here in the CSRA.

"Golden Harvest is a great program that's based right here in the community and this is one way that I can give back with all the help that I received during the production," Barnhart said.

The film's crew says 85 percent of the documentary was shot here in the CSRA. One shot from the film shows a peanut farm with the downtown Augusta skyline. Mayor Deke Copenhaver said projects like these show the many things Augusta has to offer.

"We are a very diverse city," Copenhaver said. "We have a great downtown but we have agrarian land, farm land as well, so I think that picture really illustrates that for us."

The film is expected to be complete within the next year. The donated peanut butter is going to be split between six different food banks in the area.
