To help alleviate some financial hardships for local families and provide kids with the chance to eat a warm lunch, the NorthPoint Foundation paid off the outstanding lunch balances for overdue accounts for the Gardner Edgerton School District, Crestview School District, and the Belton 124 School District.

“This is so helpful for many Belton families,” said Sonja Abdelgawad, Executive Director of Belton Educational Foundation. “Thank you!”
