FTFF visits Harby Jr. High in Alvin, TX

FTFF makes a visit to Harby Junior High School in Alvin ISD, Texas. After hearing that the Principal pays off the outstanding lunch account balances for her students at the end of the school year, we had to get involved. We made contact with the school and support its efforts for doing the best for its students. A donation was made to help get the students through the end of the year without lunch worries. What an amazing principal and staff! Just as amazing was the appreciation exhibited by the students. Go hawks! It was a pleasure spending time with all of you at Harby. Thanks for taking a stand for our future. . . our kids!

Way to go Dylan!
An elementary student in Spring Branch raises over $300 to help take care of his classmates’ negative lunch accounts. FTFF will donate the monies he raised to Spring Branch Education Foundation–Lunch Buddies. This was a little something he wanted to do as part of his Birthday! What an amazing young man! We applaud you Dylan (as well as your incredible parents)! Thanks Lunch Angels!

A Busy Month for FTFF!
We continue to be in talks with districts and schools in our area. Our founder, Kenny Thompson, was a panelist of the School Nutrition Association’s national Webinar on October 1st, 2014. All around the country this is still a hot topic! Finding a solution on how to take care of feeding our students is critical. We look forward to a permanent solution. No child should be left behind in the lunch line!

Wow! Look what HISD has done!

What a way to kick off the new school year. HISD has taken a huge step in eliminating the alternative lunch option for the district! FTFF talked to our friends in the district to extend its Congratulations! HISD is excited, as it should be. FTFF shares that excitement and looks forward to the entire district becoming alternative lunch free! The district still has roughly 120 schools that may need assistance. FTFF will continue discussions with our friends at HISD to see how it may be of help. All for lunch. . ., lunch for all!
