The Gift of Literacy

Updated: Feb 14, 2023

We are pleased to announce our new literacy initiative. Through the efforts and book donations collected by Rye High School senior Tanner Howson, we can give new and like-new books to the children of families served by the food pantry. The selection of books ranges from infant Board Books to Young Adult novels and activity and workbooks.We are grateful to have the opportunity to help foster the love of books, and the many benefits reading provides to children and families who read together. Bread of Life is dedicated to supporting the community by nourishing the body, minds, and spirits of the people they serve. It appears that not only the recipient families are being touched by this wonderful program but also those on our team. According to Lizabeth Redfearn, The Director of the Literacy initiative, “It’s a true joy to see the anticipation and excitement on the Children’s faces as they choose their books or are handed a selection of books I’ve chosen for them. It reminds me of the wonderful memories I have of reading with my children and the warmth and happiness those moments brought us. I can imagine the same for those children and their families. I feel blessed to be involved in The Bread of Life’s literacy initiative”
