Why we need you:
This year more than 220,000 kids in Texas will participate in USDA summer meals programs. It’s a given, if children lack food in their homes, they will surely lack books as well. Giving kids the opportunity to check out books at meals sites is a proven way to keep them reading over the summer, and the perfect way for churches to connect with families, and make a difference in their communities.
We are eager to support 50 churches in this summer’s ministry, and invite you to join us. Contact Literacy ConneXus to request a free What’s for Lunch? starter kit.
Kits include a box of new and gently used children’s books for check out, library cards and pockets, and a sample t-shirt book bag. The books provided will get you started; we recommend you conduct a book drive to give kids a great selection that will last the summer.
