Oh! What a morning we had today….
This morning, we drove down to Norcross, GA located in Gwinnett County with the mission of making sure every child at elementary schools throughout the city would be lunch debt free! Our first stop was at Beaver Ridge where we donated $700 to not only pay off all of the existing lunch debt for the entire school, but also allocated funds to the All for Lunch Reserve Account. The Reserve Accounts are crucial. If we only focus on paying off the school lunch debt, the very next day the children without funds find themselves back in debt again. With the All for Lunch Reserve Accounts funded, if a child ever finds that they are unable to pay for their lunch the Reserve Account will cover the cost of their meal.
After we visited with the principal and cafeteria manager at Beaver Ridge, we continued on to Baldwin Elementary School where we gave $750 to eliminate the lunch debt for every child at the school and set up the Reserve Account. We then made our way down to Norcross Elementary School followed by Susan Stripling Elementary School and finally ended at Peachtree Elementary School. We had such a great time meeting with principals, cafeteria managers, counselors, bookkeepers and school staff and getting to learn about the unique challenges that each school faces and how All for Lunch can help positively make an impact in their school community.
At the end of our day, every elementary school in the Norcross High School Cluster of Norcross, GA was lunch debt free AND had All for Lunch Reserve Accounts established! Now no child will be denied lunch at school due to debt or insufficient funds! Thank you to all of our donors that make this possible. 100% of your tax-deductible donation goes directly to schools – paying off school lunch debt and funding Reserve Accounts. Become a donor today to make sure every child in your community has access to lunch at school, regardless of their financial situation at home.
