Family Literacy Day joins forces with Food Banks Canada

TORONTO - Approximately nine million adult Canadians struggle with low literacy.

Unfortunately, individuals with lower literacy skills have lower rates of employment, and tend to work in occupations with lower skill requirements.

Family Literacy Day is on Jan. 27 and is a national initiative that helps to increase awareness of literacy issues in Canada, and encourages adults and children to engage in at least 15 minutes of learning activities every day.

ABC Life Literacy Canada and Food Banks Canada are now working together for Family Literacy Day 2012 to reach more Canadians with the literacy message.

To find a local food bank, visit foodbankscanada.ca. To find a local Family Literacy Day event visit familyliteracyday.ca.
