Olga’s Kitchen, an iconic metro Detroit brand born from the success of its signature, grilled-to-order, secret recipe Olga Bread, has a new summer reading program, “Get Fed for What You Read.” Olga’s Kitchen created this program to help kids avoid the “summer slide” which, according to the National Summer Learning Association, estimates that students who do not read over the summer will lose roughly 22%, or about two months, of knowledge gained during the school year.

Through the “Get Fed for What You Read” program, kids can earn a free kid’s meal and kid’s dessert simply by reading. Parents and children can download the reading tracker from the Olga’s Kitchen web site, www.olgas.com, where children should color in a segment for every ten minutes of reading they complete. Once the entire tracker is full, a parent or guardian must sign the document for the child and bring it to their local Olga’s Kitchen to claim the reading rewards.

The program runs through September 4 and is designed for children 12 years of age and younger. There is no limit to the number of trackers a child can complete over the course of the program.
