CHAMPAIGN, Ill. (WCIA) — A group of parents is helping families catch up on school lunch fees. They’ve raised about $3,000 through online fundraising pages.

GoFundMe accounts are set up for Carrie Busey, Barkstall and South Side elementary schools. A district spokesperson says they’re putting the money towards the lunch debt balance.

District-wide, it’s now less than $23,000, down from more than $25,000 at the beginning of the summer.
