PEAPOD PARTNERS WITH FEEDING AMERICA FOR SEPTEMBER’S HUNGER ACTION MONTH
In honor of Hunger Action Month, Peapod, the country’s leading online grocer, has joined Feeding America in the fight against hunger. From September 14th to September 27th, Peapod will donate $1 to Feeding America for every one of its Peapod meal kits sold, up to $10,000*. For every $1 donated, Feeding America provides 11 meals to families in need. Peapod customers can choose from over 25 varieties of the family-friendly meal kits to add to their regular grocery cart.
“We’re proud to work with Feeding America in the national fight against hunger,” said Carrie Bienkowski, Peapod’s Chief Marketing Officer. “We are members of the communities we serve and want to do our part to ensure every family has enough to eat. We believe access to fresh food is a right, not a privilege.”
“Forty one million Americans are food insecure, including nearly 13 million children,” said Nancy Curby, Senior Vice President, Corporate Partnerships & Operations, Feeding America. “Hunger Action Month was created to draw attention to this massive issue and inspire everyone to get involved. We are grateful to Peapod for helping to increase awareness about the issue of hunger and support people in need.”
