Air Force veteran pays off East Peoria student lunch accounts

An anonymous Air Force veteran with a big heart paid off all outstanding student lunch accounts at Central Junior High School.

Thirty-nine students had balances ranging from under a dollar to over $100, totaling out to $510. Earlier this week, the veteran and their family gave the school’s principal a check to pay for all the students.

“The family hopes their donation will inspire other families to give back which we thought was an incredible message,” said the school in a Facebook post.
