Read & Feeds in Lincoln County

A Read & Feed is a community meal specifically for families with children that focuses on literacy.  The goal of a Read & Feed is to develop and encourage family literacy. Family literacy takes place during daily routines with interactive literacy activities between parents and their children that develop a learning environment within the home. These events focus on providing a hot meal to families, as well as providing age-appropriate books and literacy activities for youth.

These fun community-centered events occur throughout Lincoln County in a variety of locations.

As Dr. Seuss wrote, “The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you’ll go!”
