Annual Report: LPS School Lunch Support Fund

A wave of online generosity inspired Lincolnites to fulfill a need within Lincoln Public Schools: school lunch debt. Though no child goes without lunch, families often cannot pay their child’s lunch debt. Thankfully, our community responded, and in November 2022, the LPS School Lunch Fund was created. 

“School meals ensure that students have the nutrition they need so they can learn and be successful throughout the school day,” said Andrew Ashelford, Director of Nutrition Services at LPS. “Witnessing the outpouring of support for this fund is truly heartwarming.”

Generous community members like you have made a tremendous difference. Thanks to your contributions, over $21,000 of lunch debt was cleared, directly impacting the lives of over 1,700 students and their families in 35 LPS schools. Every child deserves a chance to shine, and freedom from the weight of debt is one way the community can support our students.
