Raised by 111 people in 1 month
On the first day of school, Danielle was 15 cents short for lunch at University High School in Florida. The cafeteria worker took her lunch away and threw it in the garbage. No student deserves to suffer this humiliation or go hungry merely because of their inability to pay.

At the Lawyers' Committee for Civil Rights Under Law, we are fighting school districts that maintain policies that penalize students and their families because of their poverty. Donate today to help support students in need and to help us fight school districts that maintain punitive , inhumane and harsh "No Charge" policies.

The bottom line -- No student should go hungry.

Thank you for your support! We have issued a letter to the the school district and are awaiting their formal response. We are also pushing school districts to reform their policies so that no student is denied lunch merely because of their inability to pay. Our work is conducted with support of the mother of the young student who was denied lunch. Thanks for supporting our work and our fight to protect students!
