Magazines flow for literacy at the River Food Pantry

River NewsstandMagazines are flying off the shelves at this newsstand.

We’ve partnered with Dane County food pantries and today made our first magazine deliveries and set up a magazine newsstand at the River Food Pantry in time for 250+ families who arrived this evening for groceries and a hot meal.

Rhonda at the food pantry said:

I gave a magazine to this little girl tonight and she was so glued to it while her mom was shopping at the River tonight…I saw her talking out loud and “reading” to herself while looking at the pages.
