Each quarter, Skagit Valley Food Co-op selects four Tokens for Tomorrow recipients. With Tokens for Tomorrow, every time you bring in a reusable shopping bag, we honor your commitment to reducing waste with a token worth 5¢ to give to four local organizations doing great things for our community. Get to know 2021’s 3rd Quarter Tokens for Tomorrow Recipients:

Guided by the principle that literacy is essential to lifelong success, Page Ahead provides new books and develops reading activities that empower at-risk youth. Page Ahead is the leading provider of children’s books and literacy services in Washington, partnering with elementary schools, early learning centers, and other agencies across the state.

Page Ahead works to erase the early reading gap for under resourced children before it becomes an “achievement gap”.
