In recent years, a holiday giving idea that has gained momentum on social media involves public school districts accepting donations to help families who have negative lunch account balances. Many families in the St. Louis Park Public School District struggle with this same problem.
If you feel compelled to make a donation there are a few things you should know:
- Due to the confidential nature of school lunch information, donations cannot be made on behalf of a particular family, but can be donated to a particular school (Aquila, Peter Hobart, Park Spanish Immersion, Susan Lindgren, the Middle School, or the High School.)
- Donations will be distributed equally to families who have a negative balance AND who qualify for free and reduced meal prices.
- Donations can be sent to the St. Louis Park Public Schools Nutrition Office, 6425 West 33rd Street, St. Louis Park, MN 55426.
If you have any questions you can contact Jodie Woelffer in the Nutrition Office at 952-928-6146 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
