Peapod: Refer-a-Friend/Feed the Hungry Program

Earlier this month, we received a wonderful gift from Peapod, an online grocer that serves Connecticut. From June 17 through Aug. 12, Peapod, through its summer Refer-a-Friend Charity Program, agreed to contribute $10 for every new referred customer up to a campaign maximum of $25,000. Those that referred and tried the service for the first time also earned a $10 discount for their own grocery orders. As a result of the community effort, 11 food banks received a $25,000 gift overall. Of those funds, Connecticut Food Bank received $2,912. Thank you Peapod for your ongoing support of our mission to alleviate hunger. Posted by Janet Kniffin, Chief Development Officer of Connecticut Food Bank
