Our Program

..aims to bridge the reading gap by providing children with the resources they may not have access to at home. Our goal is to help children who aren't reading at grade level to gain confidence, while providing a comfortable setting in which to learn.

About Us

Read and Feed is an after-school literacy program that provides meals, tutoring and books to children from low-income families in Wake County.
