Every Lunch Matters Provides Food Vouchers To Hungry Students In LBUSD
My stepsister, Mary Sramek, founded Every Lunch Matters when she realized students were going hungry in LBUSD. The policy of the district is to restrict students who do not have money or credit to a milk & a piece of fruit. She was determined to make it easy to help hungry kids at school. Your donation can be made to your school of choice. If your choice has received enough donations to satisfy the needs of the hungry students at that particular site for a month, your donation will be redirected to the “most needy” category. 100% of your tax deductible donations go towards food vouchers for hungry students. Partnership opportunities available. Email EveryLunchMattersLB@gmail.com.
