Last week Kenny Thompson went into the school in Spring Branch ISD in Houston where he mentors several children, and paid off the negative lunch balances. The news story broke on a local channel, KPRC Channel 2, and the public response has been inspiring and humbling.
Since last week he’s received hundreds of donations and has heard several stories of people paying it forward at their local schools, in the Houston area, and as far a North Carolina.
With the donations received, Kenny was able to pay off the negative lunch account balances at five schools Spring Branch ISD in Houston on Monday, enabling 459 students to enjoy a hot lunch instead of cold sandwiches. The total came to $3,338.
Feed the Future Forward is the result of one act of generosity and caring. We are now looking forward to more schools, school districts, and cities around the country. If you want to help you can donate here. If you want to help in your local school district, call them! Let’s rally together and feed the future forward! All for lunch, lunch for all!
