small child reading a book

Hungry for Reading – The Hungry for Reading program began in 2014 and promotes Early Childhood Literacy.  Volunteers read to young children that visit local food pantries with their families.  Volunteers model the proper reading techniques in hope that parents or guardians will use these reading habits at home with their young children.  Each child is read a book aloud at the food pantry and then given a new book to take home with them.
