Olga's Kitchen Announces "Get Fed for What You Read" Summer Reading Program

Just in time for the start of summer vacation, Olga’s Kitchen, an iconic metro Detroit brand born from the success of its signature, grilled-to-order, secret recipe Olga Bread, announced today its 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 percent, 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,, 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 from June 19 – 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. 

“Olga’s wants children to develop a continued love for reading,” said Mark Schostak, owner and chairman, of TEAM Schostak Family Restaurants. “As a father, I know the battles that can ensue trying to get kids to read and keep up on their studies over the summer. Parents are always looking for incentives to motivate their children. We’re hoping lunch or dinner at Olga’s Kitchen, plus dessert, can do just that,” he added.
