Toppers Pizza in Kapuskasing has launched a “Feed Your Mind” program to increase student reading levels.
The average student has a two month set back in their reading abilities over the summer months which is why the pizza chain decided to start this program.
For every 25 books a student reads they will be rewarded with a free pizza.
So far two schools in Kapuskasing are on board and the owners of Toppers say they’ve already had some repeat students. Pizzeria owners, Pierre and Janie Neron say they’re pleased with last year’s outcome and hope to see more readers come in and redeem their coupons.
Right now École Catholique Jacques-Cartier and Saint Patrick’s school are taking part in the “Feed Your Mind Program”.
The program is available to any students from Kindergarten to Grade 6 who have a local Topper’s Pizza in their community.
