A Single Tweet Is Helping Pay For School Lunches Across The Country

Back in December, after seeing too many stories about children with unpaid school lunch accounts going hungry or being given embarrassing substitute meals, Ashley C. Ford tweeted a suggestion that people could donate to pay off student lunch debts.  The suggestion generated thousands of likes and shares, and started a conversation that drew national media attention and continues into the new year.  

According to the Associated Press, campaigns inspired by Ashley's idea have generated thousands of dollars and paid off lunch debts for children all over the country.
