WARRICK CO., IN (WFIE) - A new group in Warrick County is raising funds in hopes of wiping out negative school lunch balances.
Melinda Mitchell said the effort started after she watched a video of a mother packing a second lunch for her child's friend. She said she met with school leaders at Newburgh Elementary and found out there's nearly $5,000 in unpaid lunch debt.
Mitchell got the word out on Facebook and has since raised over $1,000.
She formed a group called Warrick County School Lunch Buddies and she's hoping more people will come forward to help wipe out the debt.
