We’ve developed a variety of programs that are based on educational enrichment and charitable action to give back.
We’re proud of our efforts and believe this altruistic approach aligns with our family-focused values.
Reading, wRiting & Ravioli Program
The Reading, wRiting & Ravioli Program was created to improve the reading skills of grade school students and provide another tool for teachers to ensure the success of our children. The Pasta House Co. developed this program in 1989 and has more than 450 schools and more than 3,500 teachers participating in the St. Louis area. Over the past 30 years we’ve had more than 600,000 students participate in the program. In return for spending time reading, students and teachers earn free food from any of our locations.
