Sometimes it's just about giving back. A school district in Maine has received a generous donation from an anonymous donor to help pay off students' school lunch debts.
School officials got a $10,000 check from an anonymous donor which will help erase a big chunk of the $17,000 owed by families in the district for student lunches. School officials say they would rather face debt than have a child go hungry.
Lunch at local elementary and middle schools costs approximately $2.30 per meal, so the $10,000 donation is equivalent to more than 4,300 meals at that level.
How much does a school lunch cost at your child's school? Have local governments failed our school districts? Should schools ever have to incur debt to feed their students?
