"A community where everyone has the ability to read and have something to eat."
BreadAndBooks.org exists to promote literacy and self-empowerment to children and young adults through healthy reading activities and to bring people together in providing meals and essentials to those in need.
We need to strengthen the core of our country and help adults and children that are in need. Hunger and illiteracy are realities throughout the U.S. It’s time to make a difference and lend a helping hand.
No On Can Thrive On An Empty Stomach
In the United States, there are more than 37 million people struggling with hunger. Of those, more than 11 million are children.
We can do better. That's where the "bread" in Bread and Books comes in.
Small Acts Can Transform The World.
See how we feed people, teach them to read and promote the love of the written word.

About Bread & Books
We're an organization made up of 100% non-paid volunteers with a big heart.
1 in 4 children in America grow up without learning how to read.
2/3 of students who cannot read proficiently by the end of 4th grade will end up in jail or on welfare. Over 70% of America’s inmates cannot read above a 4th grade level.
Again, we can do better. That's where the "books" in Bread and Books come in
