Las Vegas Raiders pay off $500,000 in school lunch debt across Nevada

By

According to the School Nutrition Association (SNA), the median amount of unpaid school meal debt held by school districts across the United States has increased by a massive 70% over the last six years. It comes as no surprise when costs have continued going up, but wages have largely stagnated over the last decade.

People have come up with some pretty creative ways to tackle the issue. In Vermont, state senators are proposing universal free school meals. And across the nation, kids are raising money to help pay off the debt of their peers. And now, even football teams are getting involved.
