HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) --For Amina Ishaq, not getting to eat a hot school lunch is personal.
As the PTO president of a Lamar Consolidated ISD elementary school, she says ending hunger is a passion of hers, especially when it comes to students.
She launched a GoFundMe page to raise money for students in need of lunch at school.

With an initial goal of $15,500, Ishaq hoped to pave the way for free lunches for every student, regardless of income at home.
"We don't know people's home situation," Ishaq told Eyewitness News.
Now two months after starting her fundraiser, she has raised more than $18,000. She also expanded her goal to $25,000.
