PB&J School Lunch Fundraiser

Mark your calendars for the third annual PB&J Fundraiser!
Enjoy PB&J sandwiches and pair it with Junkyard's famous Peanut Butter Bandit Stout or Raspberry Super Slurp. All proceeds from this event go toward Moorhead Area Public Schools (MPS) to reduce school lunch debt because #ThatsOurJam.

BACKGROUND
A school's job is to educate its students, and hungry kids can't focus on learning. Nearly 36% of students in MPS are eligible for free or reduced-price meals, but this program doesn’t fill the gaps when families’ financial situations change. Sometimes families are unable to pay for meals — and even if they eventually qualify for free or reduced-price lunches, they need help covering negative meal account balances created during that gap.

Moorhead Public Schools (MPS) have consistently chosen to prioritize school lunches. Rather than using methods that hurt kids and impair relationships with families, MPS practices a strict “no shaming” policy when it comes to unpaid student lunches.

HOW TO PARTICIPATE
-Show up at noon, bring your friends, neighbors, and wallet.
-Enjoy tasty PB&J sandwiches: we think everyone should eat, regardless of the cash in their pocket, so lunch is a free-will donation.
-Drink Junkyard Beer because $1 from each pint goes to the cause
-Buy raffle tickets for chances to win wonderful prizes.
-Bid on items in the silent auction and win prizes from local businesses
-Eat Pico Food Truck! 10% of their sales also go to the cause.
-Play games, visit with your neighbors, and show support for a great cause--our kids!
