Generous Donation Ends Lunch Debts

The lunch debt of close to 550 Bethel students has been wiped clean as the result of a generous donation.

The families of close to 550 Bethel students will be receiving a big surprise. Their lunch debts – totaling $13,700 – have been paid for them.

New Hope Church in Eugene wanted to help the community and contacted Bethel’s Nutrition Services department.

When told that hundreds of Bethel students on the reduced-price meal program owed a significant amount of money for their meals, New Hope Church only wanted to know one thing: the total.

With no fanfare, they dropped off a $13,700 check to wipe out the debt.

This is the largest ever donation accepted by Nutrition Services on behalf of Bethel families.
