GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. - The School District 51 Foundation donated more than $2,000.00 to the Angel Lunch Fund.
100% of all donations go to the accounts of families with high balances for unpaid meal accounts.
A large portion of Mesa County population are considered the working poor. The foundation says the ripple effect is that they have a growing amount of families with unpaid meal accounts.
School District 51 says a large portion of families who are in need do not realize they qualify for free or reduced lunches.
