Feed Your Brain is a bilingual, family reading program where parents learn and practice literacy strategies by reading cultural responsive bilingual books through direct engagement in diverse neighborhoods and schools, we have three sites, 2 Elementary Schools and an Apartment Complex. During our program we serve Latino and Marshallese students from birth to 12th grade. During our first year of summer 2013 we had a total of 13 families, 42 kids and read over 270 books.
