SHELTON – On May 13th, a group of 4th and 5th grade students from St. Joseph’s School made a special delivery to help feed those in need in the Valley.
Students met up with a Peapod delivery truck at the Spooner House in Shelton, where they helped unload a $250 grocery donation 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. Peapod.com, the country’s leading online grocer, challenged St. Joseph’s 4th and 5th grade classrooms to utilize a $250 donation from Peapod to create a delivery order of the most nutritious foods possible. The students used nutrition and budgeting lessons to put together a complete Peapod.com order which they delivered to the Spooner House Food Bank, located at 30 Todd Rd.
Peapod is committed to helping its neighbors in need. Moreover, Peapod is pleased to encourage the next generation to give back to the community and help instill healthy eating and budgeting lessons at an early age through their “Kids Give Back” program.
