A local organization has been fundraising to help provide lunch to students and alleviate the lunch debt in Lebanon City Schools.
Lunch On Us has raised $5,000 to help students at Bowman Primary School and to support the Lebanon High School graduating class of 2019.
“Lunch On Us decided to help our Lebanon High School seniors erase their lunch debt so they would be able to receive their diplomas on graduation day. We truly wanted to make a difference and give our graduates a fresh start as they completed high school,” Project Leader Renee Forrester said.
The donations given fill the gap and give students and families lunch debt relief; $13.25 feeds a student for a week, $26.50 feeds a student for two weeks, $79.50 feeds a student for a month, and $251.75 feeds a student for the school year.
