SHELTON >> Fourth and fifth grade students from St. Joseph School in Shelton recently participated in the Peapod Kids Give Back Program, which offers classrooms the opportunity to learn about nutrition, practice budgeting skills and understand how to make a positive impact in the local community through a special food bank donation funded by Peapod, the country’s leading online grocer.
Over the last few weeks, the students have been reading and working with the materials provided by Peapod. To conclude, Peapod gave the students the opportunity to select $250.00 worth of healthy food to be delivered to their pantry of choice, Spooner House.
On May 28, 4th and 5th grade students from St. Joseph School met with a Peapod delivery truck at Spooner House to help unload a $250 grocery item donation that they pieced together on behalf of Peapod’s Kids Give Back program.
Peapod’s Kids Give Back Program is designed to teach students about nutrition, shopping on a budget, and how to use this knowledge to give back to local food banks.
