Children of all families may experience a hardship and struggle to pay for meals throughout the year, and qualifying families that receive free or reduced-price breakfast and lunch can struggle to pay even reduced prices. Some families who would qualify for free or reduced prices do not fill out the necessary paperwork. They may be unaware of the program, reluctant to share personal information, or may feel like they can't ask for help.


The Pecatonica School District does attempt to collect on all negative accounts, but we still make sure students eat every day. We also attempt to collect on delinquent accounts by using phone calls and written correspondence throughout the year.


Currently there are families with negative lunch balances that exceed -$100. Thanks to the generosity of an anonymous donor, Pecatonica Elementary students have the chance to end the school year in the black... but the middle and high school students still need assistance.


To achieve this, additional monies generated by the community to support this effort by Friday, June 16th will be dispersed to help students with negative lunch accounts before the end of the "fiscal" school year on June 30th. This way they can start next school year with a fresh slate!

Pecatonica School District has delinquent lunch accounts at this time of the year that exceeds $5000. Any donation to the program and to either building will greatly help and reduce this burden on area families.


Anyone wishing to donate may drop off or mail funds to the Pecatonica District Office, located at 704 Cross Street, Blanchardville, WI 53516, attention: Lunch Match Grant. Funds may also be dropped off at Pecatonica Elementary School, located at 701 School Road, Hollandale, WI 53544.
