Young readers to earn free meal at local Piccadilly restaurants

ATLANTA -- Piccadilly restaurants have launched a summer reading program for kids where completing a number of books earns a free meal for each child that participates. 

By taking part in the Back to Books summer program, young readers must finish reading a log of ten books. 

A spokeswoman for Piccadilly said the restaurant teamed up with Reading is Fundamental, which helps children in need. So, all Piccadilly diners can help the cause by adding a $1 donation to their checks when they eat at a Piccadilly during June and July. Reading is Fundamental (RIF) is a large organization that helps kids get their hands on high-quality, free books.

"The positive reinforcement that Back to Books offers kids for continuing to read throughout the summer will encourage healthy reading habits that will stay with these years to come," Tom Sanderman, Piccadilly's CEO said. 

Each Piccadilly restaurant will have the Back to Books reading logs available.
