Health through Literacy

Health Through Literacy delivers reading sessions for children aged 4-12, their parents, grandparents, and caregivers. AmeriCorps members and community volunteers will organize readings at neighborhood libraries. Members will use books with healthy food and physical activity themes to enhance health messages. Tip sheets incorporate physical activity, provide ideas for a food tasting, integrate health messages and encourage discussions.

  • 1,920 community members are projected to participate over the course of the grant.
