A Kid's Gotta Eat!

An alarming number of children, even right here in southwest Montana, can’t afford a $2.35 school lunch, despite access to federal and state subsidies. In fact, according to the School Nutrition Association, more than 76% of school districts nationwide have kids with school lunch debt. A recent story in the news brought to light that, in many school districts, hot lunches are degradingly taken away from students at the register if they don’t have the cash or sufficient funds in their school accounts to pay for it.

Every kid deserves a hot nutritious lunch, period. No kid should ever be denied lunch because their parents are going through a rough patch, and certainly no kid should have to suffer humiliation over not being able to pay for a $2.35-lunch. Luckily, in our community, our school districts do not deny meals to students. But as a result, our students have incurred significant debt for unpaid lunches. Your donation will be used to pay off student lunch debt incurred at our public schools. Please help ease the minds of struggling parents and prevent our wonderful schools from having to implement humiliating policies that deny a hot lunch to our kids. Every penny of your donation will go to the public schools of Gallatin and Park Counties. Thank you so very much for your generosity!
