PAULDING – Alfonso “Tony” Gonzales Jr. has a passion to make sure no one goes hungry, especially school children. Gonzales said it broke his heart when he heard that a child in a Utah school system had their lunch taken away because they didn’t have the money to pay for it.

He said, “This is a problem not just in Utah, but around here as well. I just kept asking myself, ‘What can we do? What can I do to help?’ I want to help make sure that each child eats lunch and ensure that trays of food are not dumped due to lack of funds or because they did not have the money.”
