The topic of school lunch debt has been making the news recently as stories of children having their lunch taken away from them continue to pop up. One UFC fighter, however, took matters into his own hands and paid off all the lunch debt for two schools in Colorado.
Justin Gaethje, who defeated Donald Cerrone in the first round of their UFC on ESPN+ 16 fight in September, was revealed to have paid a total of $1,538 to cover the outstanding lunch debt for two schools, removing the burden from the parents.
The West Early College shared the news of Gaethje’s contribution on Facebook and expressed their gratitude for the fighter’s generosity.
“West Early College families received a wonderful holiday gift today. Shout out to Justin “The Highlight” Gaethje who is a champion UFC fighter and friend to our Cowboys. Today he wrote a check for $1,538.00 to pay off all student lunch debt for the semester. We love and appreciate your generous gift! Thank you 🧡🖤!!”
