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.

The new photo today is Valerie Castile.  She is a powerhouse fighting for accountability in police shootings, justice, family rights, and just loving one another.  

This photo was taken after the acquittal of the officer who shot and killed her son for no reason.  He posed no threat.  He was calm.  He informed the officer he had a licensed weapon.  Within seconds he was dead.

Valerie Castile is FIERCE.  And handles all of this with a grace I cannot comprehend.

For her we raise the funds to continue her son's beloved job.  For the kids, we keep Mr. Phil's work in action.

Please share this site.  Thank you.

The AMAZING Anthony Smith- Senior Journalist at MIC.COM- just talked with me about Philando Feeds the Children! This wonderful man wants to solve the lunch-debit crisis across the country!

ALL kids deserve the same good meal.  ALL kids should not worry about who pays or how to pay.

Let's help Anthony.  If you have an idea to help make lunch payments a function of state or national government, email me.

And, as ever, please donate to and share this site.  We are winning the battle because of you!  THANK YOU!
