Read to FeedFor nearly two decades, Time Warner Cable has been committed to offering ground-breaking, one of-a-kind educational initiatives to schools across eastern Wisconsin and the Public Affairs team wanted to create something new and exciting.  Time Warner Cable Wisconsin Division started the Read to Feed Program.  For each book a student read, Time Warner Cable would donate one can of food to a local food pantry.   199 schools from 55 communities participated and read 170,000 books, equaling 170,000 cans of food for those in need.  Teachers loved this program because it encouraged children to read and at the same time taught them the importance of community service and philanthropy.
