Good samaritan pays delinquent lunch accounts for 60 children

On Mon. a good samaritan in Houston, Utah, Kenny Thompson, paid the delinquent lunch accounts for 60 elementary school children.

Thompson has been a mentor and tutor for ten years always doing his best to meet the needs of the students in his life.

When he learned that some children at Houston's Valley Oaks Elementary School had negative balances on their lunch accounts he paid them.

These children were getting different lunches than the other kids that consisted of cold cheese sandwiches instead of a full tray of food.

Thompson was impelled into action after he heard about the dozens of Utah students who had their lunches taken and thrown in the garbage. He said:

I'm like, 'Wow. I know that's probably a situation at my school, and the school my son goes to, and the other schools I mentor at.' So I came in and inquired about it. These are elementary school kids. They don't need to be worried about finances. They need to be worried about what grade they got in spelling.

Many children who have delinquent accounts tend to forgo the lunch line altogether to avoid embarrassment. According to physicians, it's bad for a child not to eat and has been linked to poor classroom performance without the proper nutrition.

Undoubtedly Thompson made a difference in the children's lives he helped by paying their lunch accounts. He said: "When I left the building knowing that they were getting fed, they didn't have that stress. The best money I ever spent."
