Donor pays school lunch debt for 171 kids

OCEAN SPRINGS (AP) — An anonymous donor has wiped away the lunch debt for all students in one Mississippi school district.

The Sun Herald reports that the $760 donation to the Ocean Springs School District took care of 171 children, mostly in kindergarten through the eighth grade.

Gayle Schultz, the district’s nutrition director, calls the gift “a great big blessing” for families and schools.
