MONTAGUE, Mich. (WOOD) — Students at Montague Area Public Schools, Whitehall District Schools and Fennville Public Schools will head back to school free of lunch debt.
Montague announced on Facebook Thursday that Jen and Dan Hain of Fetch Brewing Company had paid off all 171 student lunch accounts that were in the red.
Montague school officials said the Hains were inspired by a similar act by Mitten Brewing in Northport, which paid $2,700 to erase lunch debts at Suttons Bay district near Traverse City.
The Mitten Brewing Company in Saugtauck says it did the same for all the students at Fennville, to the tune of $1,555.70.
Fennville students start the new year Monday, Whitehall students on Tuesday and Montague students Sept. 3.
