Seattle parent who started campaign to wipe out school-meal debt takes effort statewide

Jeff Lew has already helped raise nearly $100,000 to wipe out the lunch debt in five Washington districts. With the message that no child should have to go hungry or be shamed if their families can’t afford a school meal, his campaigns have netted donations from community members, businesses and even Grammy-winner John Legend.

Now, Lew is taking the campaign statewide. The Seattle parent hopes to raise at least $600,000, which is the estimated total amount of lunch debt in districts across Washington.
