Florida Man Pays Off School Lunch Debt for Over 400 Students

For once the phrase “Florida man” won’t send chills up your spine.

When Andrew Levy, a man from Palm Beach County, Florida, heard that over 400 children in his community weren’t getting a full lunch at school because they owed money, he knew he had to do something to help.

“Food is something that you shouldn’t have to think about,” Levy said.

So he called up the Jupiter Public School district and wrote them a check for $944.34. This act of kindness has caught on and spread rapidly.

When he posted about the ongoing issue in the school district, others reached out asking if they could contribute, too. In light of all the support, Levy set up a quarterly fund to stay on top of any future student lunch debt so that no student goes hungry.
