Dish Up Literacy?

We eat – Kids read!

Dish Up Literacy is a delicious community event that brings neighborhoods together to give kids in need the chance to read.

When you dine at a participating restaurant on Wednesday, September 28th, a portion of your bill goes directly to provide books and reading programs for children in need – right in your neighborhood.

So take a group of colleagues to your favorite lunch spot, or invite your friends for dinner,
or treat the family to a meal out
just make sure that wherever you go –
reading is on the menu!

Bon Appetit!

If you represent a restaurant and are interested in joining this year's participants in Dish Up Literacy, please contact Nayab by email or call 206.461.0123.
