Lunch debt is a problem that plagues schools across the nation, and our charter school in St. Paul, Minnesota, is no exception. Most of our students qualify for Free or Reduced Price lunch, but a portion of students remain unable to apply or qualify. As a result, school lunch debt has accumulated.
Beginning next week, students with a negative lunch balance will be served cheese sandwiches for lunch. It is our passion and goal to avoid the social stigma and nutritional impacts of this alternative lunch practice.
Would you partner with us to meet this need for our students? As we enter this holiday season, your donation could make a direct impact in our neighborhood. Thank you for your consideration and support.
