Program funded: February 2014 – February 2016
The Wings to Reading program at First Baptist Church in Mountlake Terrace is an after-school academic support program, and it now includes a focus on nutritious meals and family engagement around healthy food choices. The program offers a hot meal provided that models low-cost, nutritious, well-balanced examples of recipes that can be easily duplicated at home, using fresh, local ingredients. Parent engagement at regular family nights supports the connection between what the students learn in the program and what is being served at home.
