TMSG: Dad Seeks To Pay Off All Student Lunch Debt In State Of Washington

Today's 'Tell Me Something Good' comes out of Seattle + the whole state of Washington. Jeffrey Lew, a worker at a local government agency in Seattle, learned about the issue of children and school lunches online originally. 

He discovered that kids who don't have cash or funds to pay for a school lunch end up having debt that gets sent to their families. Sometimes schools even take away lunches from children who can't pay or give them a cold, rather than hot, lunch. Otherwise known on the Internet as 'school lunch shaming.' 

Lew found out the lunch debt at his own son's school: $97.10, which he paid off. But that wasn't enough for him. It then went to the whole Seattle Public Schools district and now onto the entire state of Washington.

And if you want to help him pay off school lunch debt for kids, he has a Go Fund Me campaign here.
