Campaign to Pay Down School Lunch Debt Kicks Off

The Loudoun Education Foundation has launched its third annual campaign to collect donations that will directly support feeding children in Loudoun County.

According to Loudoun County Public Schools, the amount that students owe the school system for unpaid meal tickets is nearly $80,000 through April. For this school year, that amounts to more than 14,000 meals.

Led by Julia Humphries and former Purcellville mayor Bob Lazaro, the program seeks tax-deductible donations that are used to reduce the student meal debt. Over the past two years, the donations of individuals, businesses and organizations have been used to pay down the meal debt totals in full. Last year, the program raised more than $20,000, marking the second year that enough has been raised to pay off the meal debt.
