ROMEOVILLE – Girl Scout Troops 70760 and 70757 donated $400 worth of Peapod groceries to Romeoville Community Pantry as the culmination of their Kids Give Back curriculum, courtesy of Peapod.

Peapod’s educational curriculum is teaching more than 100 girls in the Girl Scouts of Greater Chicago and Northwest Indiana the ins and outs of shopping for healthy food choices on a budget and focuses on the importance of a nutritious diet.  A highlight of each class is an educational tour of a local food pantry, and a $200 food contribution – donated by Peapod and hand-selected by the scouts – to help hungry families in the area. 

The Kids Give Back program teaches children about how many people in this country – and in the local area – are without access to healthy food on a daily basis.
