Lunches for Lakeville was started in 2017 by Craig Pratt, a Lakeville resident, and active community member in partnership with Taber Akin, Eastview Elementary Principal, with a mission to do good and take care of these students as if they were their own.
To provide resources to our students, so they can focus on being healthy, successful contributors.
Your support and contributions will enable us to meet our goals and nourish students in need. Your generous donation will fund our mission. Lunches for Lakeville is a 501(c)(3) and donations are tax deductible.
“Our lunch ladies were really excited — somebody cares, they said,” Smalley-Rader said.
“I knew there was a need — this stuff just happens. I can’t imagine a kid trying to learn on an empty stomach,” said Pratt
“These donations will help us a lot. We’ve been carrying a deficit in our lunches. If the district were to pay the deficit, we would be using general fund monies. Now the general fund can stay in the classrooms,” Keliher said.
