Today, All for Lunch had the opportunity to visit the Fulton County School Nutrition offices where we paid off the lunch-debt for all 39 elementary schools that had lunch debt in the county! Not only did we pay off the lunch debt, but we were also able to allocate funds for reserve accounts for the schools. While many schools in the Fulton County School District qualify under the federal guidelines for free lunch for the entire school, these 39 elementary schools do not. Now EVERY CHILD AT FULTON COUNTY DISTRICT ELEMENTARY SCHOOLS IS LUNCH DEBT FREE!
With 1 in 6 children living in food insecurity, for many kids school lunch may be their only meal of the day. That is why we are on a mission to make sure every child has access to lunch at school, regardless of the financial situation at home that they have no control over. Lunch debt affects kids as young as 5 years old in kindergarten. Join us to take the burden and shame of lunch debt off their plates so that they can focus on being a kid and learning during the school day – not on being hungry.
Thank you to all of our donors that helped make today possible! 100% of your tax-deductible donations go directly back to schools – eliminating school lunch debt and funding reserve accounts. Our Reserve Accounts act as an umbrella for kids at school – if a child ever finds they don’t have money in their lunch account, the Reserve Account will cover the cost of their meal. When you become a donor, you are directly making a difference in a child’s life!
All for Lunch and Lunch for All!
