Across the country it has become an increasingly unfortunate situation where there are families that simply are not able to keep up with their children’s lunch account payments. We know that our local schools are not immune to this scenario. Not only does this add more financial stress to the household, but embarrassment and a stigma to the child who is unable to eat the same lunch as their fellow classmates. As a result, at the Great North Pole, we have rallied to raise money that will help pay off school lunch debts before families with past-due accounts start hearing from debt collectors.
With your donation, The Great North Pole will match your contribution dollar for dollar up to $20,000. This generous donation will help area schools cover their school lunch deficits.
As reference meal costs in Fargo Public Schools for the 2020-2021 school year are noted below. You can see how far your donation of just $20 can go for one child. Thank you for your consideration to participate in our mission to help area families provide healthy and nutritious meals to their children without worrying how they will provide it.
