(WFLA) -- TAMPA, Fla. — A church in Lutz is giving local families some peace of mind by wiping out lunch debt for students in Hillsborough and Pasco County.
A spokeswoman for Hillsborough County Public Schools said Idlewild Baptist Church had raised enough money to pay off student lunch debt for all juniors and seniors in the county’s public schools, and all students K-12 in Pasco County Public Schools. That’s $21,367.33 to students in Hillsborough County, and another $17,000 to students in Pasco schools.
Idlewild’s Sr. Pastor, Ken Whitten, said the church wanted to show its support for local families during these uncertain times.
