The Story

In memory of Philando Castile, this site is collecting donations to pay off elementary school kids' lunch debt.  The J.J. Hill school is several thousand dollars short.  Some kids get free lunch, but many kids come from families with incomes slightly above the cut off.  They get behind in payments, and need our help.

Philando was "Mr. Phil" to the students at J.J. Hill.  He supervised their food program and interacted with the kids every day.  He knew their names and their diets.  He LOVED his job!

Philando's death affected every one of those kids.  This fund hopes to provide the kids with a lasting connection to Mr. Phil.
Please help Philando continue to feed his kids.


We have broadened our horizons!  We can now help all schools in St. Paul and beyond!

** Please see note at bottom about mailing a donation!!!

Many people wonder if this site and venture has been approved by Philando's family.  Absolutely!  I talked with Philando's mother, Valerie Castile, before this site was created.  We have her approval and blessing.  I send her the comments.  I keep her updated about our success.  Ms. Castile is an amazing woman who dedicates herself to justice and peace.  I am grateful to know her, and to do this to honor her beloved son.

THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT!!! The donations and sharing of the cause is amazing!  We are now able to help pay off the debt at ALL St Paul Public Schools and will expand as wide as we are able!  THIS IS AMAZING!!!

The goal continues to rise because we continue to challenge ourselves and the greater community to make this fund permanent.  Mr. Phil will feed his kids for as long as we can raise the money.

A recent donor commented "To honor a kind and inspirational son of Minnesota. With our gratitude for your ongoing efforts to keep alive his memory and caring connection to our school children."

THIS is exactly why this fund exists.

Thank you all for your generosity and kindness.
