From the help of our School Lunch Fairy charter with Bernardo Hasbach, we are excited to provide lunches to kids in the area.
West Palm Beach, FL (PRWEB) May 03, 2017
School Lunch Fairy, an initiative founded by Christian Cordon-Cano, a junior at The King´s Academy in West Palm Beach, and Bernardo Hasbach is excited to announce that they have made a second donation to a local, South Florida School District. The School District of Palm Beach County will receive $1,500 in donations to provide for students who have outstanding lunch tabs in an effort to ensure that every student enjoys a decent school lunch every day.
According to a 2016 survey of 1,000 school meal program operators by the School Nutrition Association, about 75% of districts had unpaid student meal debt at the end of the school year. The median amount of debt per district was $2,000, but it can run much higher in large districts - up to $4.7 million, according to the association.
In Palm Beach County alone, there are thousands in unpaid school lunch accounts. “With the help of our School Lunch Fairy charter with Bernardo Hasbach, we are excited to provide lunches to kids in the area,” said Christian Cordon-Cano. By donating to the Palm Beach County School District, the School Lunch Fairy will start to help pay off their current unpaid accounts
Inspired by the success in crowd-funding sights, the group set up a donation site for their School Lunch Fairy program so people around the world could support the cause. The site has been a great platform, and they have already raised over $3,500. The School Lunch Fairy has set a goal amount of $5,000, but with increased fundraising efforts hopes to exceed that goal.
Every donation helps, no matter how small, and every donation to the School Lunch Fairy program goes to this worthy cause. Please visit the donation page to give and share the link to help Christian and the School Lunch Fairy reach their goal and get one-step closer to ensuring children have access to a proper school lunch.
