Lunch Aid, North Dakota leaders are reaching out to communities to support children in need
FARGO, ND (KVRR) – Lunch Aid North Dakota, a nonprofit dedicated to helping students with food insecurity, said it was working to secure donations for school lunches.
They were founded in 2019 to help families deal with lunch debt that schools send to collections.
Founder Jason Boynton said they were able to pay the $15,000 bill, giving families one less thing to worry about.
But with free COVID school lunches and inflation ending, that could lead to tens of thousands of dollars in unpaid lunches in Fargo alone.
“There are a lot of people in the community suffering from food insecurity and other symptoms of poverty, like they let us know, hey, I’m so thankful you’re doing this program because I’m suffering from food insecurity, and I think it involves a lot of people,” Boynton said.
