Read and Feed: Making Kids Hungry for Books
Nonprofit nurtures reading in kids
By Todd Cohen, Philanthropy North Carolina
CARY, N.C. — On different evenings once a week during the school year, a total of 500 children ages five to 11 who are students in Wake County public schools spend an hour or more enjoying a meal and then listening to stories, reading aloud and getting three books to take home and keep for personal libraries they are building.
Feeding kids through summer partnerships

Inter-Faith Food Shuttle is all about partnership. We know the problem of summer hunger is too large for us to fight all by ourselves. That is why we work collaboratively with partner agencies to help serve children who are participating in their summer activity programs.
