Solving School Lunch Debt – One District at a Time
Campaign #1 - Vancleave, Mississippi
Total School Lunch Debt - $2,250

Help erase this debt and put school meals back in these children’s hands NOW. Every child is worthy of direct aid - we aim to see healthy, happy children grow into compassionate, empowered adults!

School is the first social forum that children enter on their own. By assuring that every child has a meal, we affirm equal personhood. No child should go hungry, and mealtime should not bring shame with it.

Inspired by the work of other individuals who are directly tacking school lunch debts in districts around the country, Hilary Cato Stabb and Will Brumley decided to begin this campaign by targeting some of the poorest school districts in the US. The size of Jackson County’s debt is small, but it’s out of reach for the residents. Together, we can eliminate their debt, put all the children of Jackson County on equal footing in the lunchroom, and make sure young minds are energized and empowered!

All funds will go directly to the Jackson County School District and our contact with the local Food Service Director, including any surplus funds we may raise.

One last update! We let Lark Christian, Food Service Director for the Jackson County School District, know that we were fully funded. Here is her beautiful email back to us!

"Thank you so much! We are very grateful for your efforts and it has been wonderful to let parents know they have no lunch room debt. The response from parents has been total amazement and then gratefulness. It has been my pleasure to work with you. Thank you again for your efforts for our students and parents!"

To everyone who donated, THANK YOU!

Because of you, in a mere 12 days, we raised over $2,250 to erase the school lunch debt in the Jackson County School District. This impacts 15 schools and hundreds of children in the gulf of Mississippi – who won’t have to worry about their family’s debt or feel guilt over eating a school lunch. To think that in such a short span of time (less than 2 weeks) we can all collectively come together to help out people we will never know or meet is inspiring. It also proves that our strength is in numbers, that if we come together to work for a cause, we can conquer it. If we simply look to our communities, or to towns and cities outside our own who may need help…places that don’t either have community outreach or governmental support, or simply need a boost, we can make great change together.

We will sending a note today to Lark Christian, Food Service Director, alerting her that the goal is complete and there’s a little extra bonus that can be added to a fund to help those in need. We’re signing this message from all of us because this truly was a group effort and each of you made this happen.

Will & Hilary
