We don't think any child should have to go without, or have a 'substitute' lunch because they have a negative balance in their lunch account. We don't know why it's negative and we don't care - we just want the kids to get a good, lasting meal.

Back in January, as we were eating a fabulous meal at our favorite Chinese restaurant (with more food than we'd be able to eat in several meals) our conversation about the week's events hit on kids' school lunches being thrown away because their accounts were below zero.

My tender hearted 8 year old got tears in his eyes and said, "Kids have to eat lunch because sometimes it's a long time before they get home. They'll get really hungry before the end of the day."

We talked some more and he was also concerned about the kids having a hard time concentrating in classes because they'd be thinking about being hungry, or embarrassed that their food was thrown away. "And what if they didn't have breakfast, mom?"

So now mom has tears in her eyes too. What can we do to help out? What can we do at our own school? (which by the way is extremely easy to work with and hasn't denied lunch to anyone) And...after we help kids at our school we'll move on to others! Everywhere and anywhere! Let's start a fundraiser. Let's see if we can make a difference.
