#GoodNews: Utah Teacher Pays off Negative Lunch Balances

Garrett Jones is a teacher at Rocky Mountain Middle School in Heber. A couple weeks ago he posted a video a on TikTok asking for people to send him $1. His video said….

“If 2,673 people Venmo’d me $1 I could pay the outstanding lunch fees of every student in my school because the last thing a kid should be worrying about is how much they owe for meals.”

The video was viewed over 5-million times and within a few days he’d received over $30,000 in donations. Garrett says any leftover money will go towards paying for the school district’s food programs.
