Hot Lunch Program
Many children depend on a nutritious lunch to help them through their school day. Per the 2015-16 report by Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction for Washington State, 36% of Seattle Public School District students are on free or reduced-price meals. This is based on parents filling out meal applications. If a child is unable to pay for their meal, a debt has started. Families will receive an invoice from the school district to pay the debt.
The average debt for Seattle Public Schools total is $20,531.79.
Every year Toys for Kids decides on a school district to pay off their hot lunch debt.
