Just Joel's teamed up with Jiffy Car Wash & Hot Tamales to pay off school lunch debt at Southgate Elementary.

The popular restaurant has been finding its way into the hearts of Tri-Citians with its Facebook memes. Now, Just Joel's is making a difference with other local businesses.

As a kid who rarely got to eat school lunch, this is such an amazing gesture. When I racked up debt, I couldn't eat until my balance was paid. I'd love to see more of this generosity in the community - especially when it helps out the kids. Thanks, Joel, Cheryl, and Paulina!
