What a wonderful idea: County woman started this facebook page. “Beginning in September 2017, this page will show you the past-due amount for school lunches at every Lancaster County school district that has a need. Instructions will be provided for making a tax-deductible donation directly to the lunch fund for each school – then you comment on the post that you are paying all or a portion of the amount, and mail in a check. Contact us anytime with questions or suggestions. AND SPREAD THE WORD!!! The goal is to have 500 local followers of this page before the school year begins, lets do this!”
