LUNCH ON US pays off lunch debt for graduating seniors at

Lebanon High School

Formed in 2018, Lunch On Us has been fundraising to help provide lunch to students and alleviate the lunch debt incurred in Lebanon City Schools. To date, Lunch On Us has raised $5,000 to help students at Bowman Primary School in addition to supporting the Class of 2019.

Renee Forrester, Lunch On Us Project Leader, stated “We were inspired by the recent news story about Philando Castile’s mother continuing his charitable work by paying for the lunch debt of graduating seniors in Illinois. Lunch On Us decided to help our Lebanon High School seniors erase their lunch debt so they would be able to receive their diplomas on graduation day. We truly wanted to make a difference and give our graduates a fresh start as they completed high school.”

This fundraising milestone would not have been achieved without the support of the community and the employees of Lebanon Ford. Jeremy Harrison of Lebanon Ford decided to challenge his fellow co-workers to make donations to Lunch On Us. Harrison remembers his humble beginnings as a student. The mission of Lunch On Us was something he felt strongly about and wanted to make sure students were being feed and not feeling shamed. [READ MORE]
