At All for Lunch, our mission is simple: ELIMINATE SCHOOL LUNCH DEBT AND FIGHT AGAINST CHILDHOOD FOOD INSECURITY.  As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, more children than ever are living in food insecurity and do not know where their next meal is coming from. And while federal funding is in place so that all children in the U.S. have access to free lunch this school year, many kids still have lunch debt. Because of this, we are working relentlessly to not only identify and eliminate existing school lunch debt but also partner with schools and food pantries to help guarantee children living in food insecurity have access to essential lunch and breakfast items, regardless of their financial situation at home. Together we can make sure every child has access to these important meals.

Our mission is simple – to help children gain access to lunch and work to end childhood food insecurity. Children as young as 5 years old are struggling with hunger in school due to financial circumstances that are out of their control. At All for Lunch, we not only work to eliminate school lunch debt, but also provide access to essential food items so children will always have access to healthy meals regardless of their family’s ability to pay. 100% of your tax-deductible donation goes towards paying off delinquent lunch accounts, funding reserve accounts, and helping stock local support centers with essential lunch items.  With school lunch costing about $2.50 per meal, any amount that you decide to donate will make an impact in a child’s life. For some kids, this may be their only meal of the day. Join us on our mission to make sure no child goes hungry at school as we strive to provide lunch for all. 

 All for Lunch and Lunch for All!

Our purpose at All for Lunch, Inc. is to eliminate children’s delinquent school lunch debt so that children may be able to purchase hot lunch meals served at their school. All for Lunch, Inc. believes no child should be denied a nutritious hot lunch meal due to their ability to pay and are focused on fighting against childhood food insecurity throughout our communities. We work relentlessly to give children the opportunity to receive access to essential meals alongside their peers without stigma or discrimination. We join together to provide lunch for all!
