Paid Debt

Idlewild Baptist Church in Lutz, Florida paid off almost $40,000 in school lunch debt so that graduating seniors and rising juniors would not be penalized for accruing debt for school-day meals. They also paid off lunch debt for another K–12 schools in the county. The schoolchildren had a debt that they couldn’t pay, so the church stepped in, like Jesus, and paid it for them (Dan Trujillo, “Lutz Church Paying Off Nearly $40k of Student Lunch Debt in Hillsborough, Pasco Counties,” WFTS, February 16, 2021,
