ANSONIA — John G. Prendergast third-graders have learned about helping the less fortunate by taking part in Peapod’s Kids Give Back program.

The students, one from each of the five third-grade classrooms, helped unload bags of non-perishable food items from the Peapod delivery truck and bring them inside the food bank.
