NH grandmother to pay school lunch debts for Rochester students
ROCHESTER — A very generous Rochester grandmother says she will pay every one of the city's outstanding school lunch balances.
According to Seacoast Online, the grandmother of a McClelland Elementary School student hopes to pay the lunch money owed by students in Rochester Schools.
The grandmother, who wants to remain anonymous, has already paid for the debts owed at a couple of schools and wants to have everything covered by the fall.
Roughly $300 dollars is owed at each of the 10 Rochester schools, which would result in as much as $3,000 of lunch debt paid for by her generosity, according to Seacoast Online.
Rochester schools allow for all students to eat with or without the ability to pay.
The Rochester School Board Chairman Paul Lynch told Seacoast Online that a gesture like this is the kind you don't hear about enough.
