Alice Denson is the Executive Director of the Orange Literacy Council, and Richard Schramm is one of the members of the board. Both of them have been working to create the latest iteration of the annual “Dish” celebration of writing, reading and food. The Orange Literacy Council focuses on making free, individualized literacy instruction available to all adults who choose to seek it out. It’s an independent organization, rooted in the community and driven by volunteers. Fundraising efforts like “Dish” make the good work of Orange Literacy possible, and people like Denson and Schramm organize and mobilize to make everything come together.
