Dish Up Literacy by eating out

September 19th, 2009 · No Comments

Next Thursday, Sept. 24, is Dish Up Literacy day in Seattle, an event put on by Page Ahead, a non-profit organization that works to increase and develop literacy programs for children. One of their programs is providing free books to children – 160,000 of them every year.

And you can help out by doing something you probably already do – eat out.

On Thursday restaurants participating in Dish Up Literacy have agreed to donate a portion of their proceeds to Page Ahead, meaning the more people who eat out on the 24th, the more money will go toward literacy services, books and supplies for kids.

“We provide new books for kids, story times for younger children and family workshops with the proceeds,” said Tara, a Page Ahead volunteer. “Hope to see you dining out on September 24th.”

In our neighborhood, Mae’s Phinney Ridge Cafe and Carmelita are participating. You can check out all the restaurants participating here.
