Chuck Holden, District 11 chief financial officer; Mary Fonken-Holden, retired District 11 student services director; and Linda Syverson, a retired District 11 cook, served lunch Feb. 9.

Students make donations in a jar in the cafeteria, with proceeds benefiting a different organization each month.

February donations benefit the American Cancer Society. In January, $58.54 was collected for the Coon Rapids Northstar Lions Club.
