ELKINS — For the second year, Randolph County Schools is sponsoring a Mobile Feed and Read program.

Each weekday throughout the duration of the program, a Mobile Feed and Read bus is traveling throughout the county, making stops in outlying communities to provide children access to free books, a small snack, and a short read-aloud activity.

Books and snacks are available to children age birth to 18 years.

Randolph County Schools Director of Federal Programs and Curriculum Amy Rowan Smith said, “I am very excited at how this program has grown. We have included new stops this year and student participation is already exceeding our expectations.”

The program is funded by the Campaign for Grade-Level Reading/WV Leaders of Literacy Grant, which is offered through the West Virginia Department of Education.

Stops continue throughout the month of July and specific locations and times of each bus stop can be found on the Randolph County Schools webpage or by calling the Randolph County Board of Education at 304-636-9150 ext. 137.
