Dine With Dignity

2021-2022 Campaign 

Goal: A sponsor for every school's lunch debt


The Dine with Dignity Fund helps students who cannot afford a lunch, but do not qualify for free meal as part of the USDA Free And Reduced-priced Meals System (FARMS), have access to traditional lunch options. Contributions to this fund will go to schools to settle unpaid lunch balances accrued during the school year, and allow students to receive a traditional lunch option even if they are in debt.

In November 2018, Montgomery County Public Schools stopped the practice of issuing alternative meals to students with negative school lunch balances.  Unfortunately, this alternative meal signaled the students' indebtedness to their peers, increasing the potential for the students to feel humbled.  

The Foundation is raising funds to enable every student to dine with dignity. See our full announcement.
