Week 1 Book Choice: Penny Dreadful, by Laurel Snyder. HAPPY READING!
This weeks post for Mission Read is from our friend, Niki Barnes who has dropped the guilt and gone “listening” to books versus reading. Take a peek at her piece here and let us know what you think. Are you an audio or visual reader?
Don’t forget to join our twitter chat on audio books this Thursday, May 16th, 10 p.m. EST using #MissRead!
Teaming up for Healthy Eating
If you’re on a tight budget and you think you can’t shop, prepare, and enjoy healthy foods, think again. Our Community Partner, Microgreens, has created an innovative program to educate families on a government-supplemented food budget on how to do just that. And all on a budget of $3.50 per meal per family of four! No, it’s not a typo. It’s real and makes a huge difference to families with limited resources.
Page’s Corner teamed up with Microgreens Fellows & Volunteers, pictured left, and got to attend the final class at CW Harris Elementary School, in Washington D.C. In an effort to help families connect their children to the lessons they learned in class, we donated our Healthy Eating StoryCraft Box. This box features the book, Gregory the Terrible Eater, by Mitchell Sharmat. Families will use it as a tool at home with their children to reinforce learning from class, as well as boost interest & passion for healthy food.
We are proud to be a part of Founder, Chef Alli Sosna’s community efforts & urge you to visit their website, www.micorgreensproject.org, to learn more about the program, volunteering, or sponsorship.
The Mamma’s of Page’s Corner look forward to working with this fantastic organization again this fall as they expand up the east coast into our own backyard of Baltimore, MD! Subscribe to our blog and newsletter to stay informed.
