Mission Statement

Our mission is to improve student communication skills through exciting activities while providing them with the opportunity to gain a better understanding of healthy living and an appreciation of their community.

Description

Read a Recipe for Literacy is a content-based literacy program that takes the unique and special flavor of a particular location and builds a program that inspires children to learn more about their community while improving communication skills. The innovative curriculum uses literal and figurative "recipes" to advance literacy while also promoting a community-driven effort to understand and respect the local and global environment and attain healthful living through improved nutrition.

The program currently runs in Jupiter and West Palm Beach, Florida and Southhold, New York.

Read A Recipe works in partnership with the Palm Beach County Parks and Recreation Centers (West Jupiter and Westgate) and their after-school programs, the Peconic Land Trust, and other gracious supporters.
