Overdue lunch account crisis locally

Several of our local schools are experiencing a crisis of unpaid student lunch accounts. Many of these families do not qualify for the reduced/free program, however, they still struggle to afford daily lunch for the children. These balances have grown since the beginning of the school year, and have also become a cafeteria burden. We would love to help alleviate this stress by fundraising within our community to bring the lunch accounts current. Please click "I Can Help" to donate and join the effort to help eliminate childhood food insecurity. 

Think of it this way... instead of buying coffee for the person behind you in line, what about donating to cover a hungry child's lunch today. 

Spreading kindness makes the world a better place!

Updated amount as of 3/15/23: 
Total overdue account balance for 13 schools $7390.36
Donations received to date $5350.00
