The Success Foundation Serving Greeley-Evans Schools invites District 6 Families to participate in Food4Success, a campaign geared to raise funds for accumulated school meal debt. Prior to schools shutting down, accumulated meal debt totaled $250,000. District 6 Nutrition Services continues to feed 5,200 meals per day while schools are closed, operating at a deficit of an additional $19,000 daily.
District 6 Families can now donate any positive balance in their student’s lunch account to the Food4Success Campaign by completing this survey. Federal regulation prohibits the Nutrition Services Department from writing off accumulated debt. Therefore, District 6 must pay from their general fund, which is already being challenged due to the current crisis. Paying off the meal debt of graduation seniors will be prioritized, giving our students and our school district one less worry during this challenging time.
“Providing our students with healthy meals is vital but creating a significant deficit for our Nutrition Services Department,” stated Steve LaForest, Success Foundation Board President. “We want to help in whatever way we can and appreciate our community for their support.
