Cobb County, GA, police officers are raising money to pay off the lunch debts of school children in their jurisdiction.

Nearly half of the student body of Cobb County Schools relies on free or reduced lunches, and some families have racked up some debt, WSB TV reports. 

Cobb County officers and the Fraternal Order of Police realized the need. WSB reports they dropped off a $500 check to pay for lunches that were bought on credit at one of the Cobb high schools. 

The FOP said the money they gave came from their inaugural Cops and Kids Golf Tournament, which raised more than $5,000.

They started with giving money to three schools in south Cobb County and hope to give funds to every school in the district.
