OUTRAGE As School District Fires Lunch Lady For Trying To Buy A Starving Student Lunch!

Residents in a small Idaho town are outraged after a lunch lady was fired for giving a starving studentĀ  a free lunch.

The lunch lady wasn’t even given a chance to pay for it or figure something out, and she notes that extra food is thrown away everyday-she refused to let it go in the trash instead of going to a hungry, desperate little girl.

According to KPVI:

“Dalene Bowden said despite being fired, she doesn’t regret what she did for the student.

“My heart hurts,” she said. “I truly loved my job, and I can’t say that I wouldn’t do it again.”

Bowden lost her job at Irving Middle School last week. She said she was working as a server last Tuesday when a 12-year-old girl told her she didn’t have any money and was hungry.

“So I handed her the food, and said ‘here, we’ll take care of it in a minute,'” she said.”

Instead of letting her pay for the meal or figure something out, you won’t believe what happened next!

“Bowden’s supervisor saw what happened and reported her.

“He said I was on permanent leave until he called me – I should not call them, he will call me,” she said. “And they never called me… then I got the letter.”

The letter, signed and written by school district 25’s director of human resources, informed Bowden that she was being terminated for theft. The cafeteria worker said she thought the decision was “ridiculous.”

“They’re hungry, what do you do?” she asked. “Send them out there so they can get it taken away and thrown away? No!””



  1. I would have done the same thing if the child was hungry and shame on the supervisor that fired her never giving the lunch lady a chance to pay for the childs food and to the supervisor you will have a payback and its coming and not feeding a child that was hungry

  2. These repeated acts of outright stupidity are indicative of a group of people who are generally losers in life by any objective measures and have landed in or gravitated to positions of minor authority in our educational system. Here they have found themselves in charge of their small fiefdoms, with some authority over others for the first time in their lives – and they wield that authority with vigor. The days of my youth, with teachers who love their jobs and really teach rather than indoctrinate are long gone.

    And that seems to go for most all government employees. When was the last time you heard a person in the public sector say they love their job? And its not the money; I know some who do quite well and cannot wait to retire and “get the hell out of this place,” as one recently told me.

    The problem is that the systems protect poor performance and stupid decisions.

    The larger problem is that we allow it.

  3. This is ridiculous, they would rather throw the food out than help a hungry child. What has this country come to?

  4. Surely they have some kind of school lunch program paid for by the federal govt. Maybe the supervisor should have gone to the office to take care of this poor little girl


  6. What in GOD’s name has America came to? What does this say about America and us a a people? We spend almost a trillion dollars a year on illegals and even more for foreign aid. We actually borrow this money from China to give away, but a lunch room worker gets fired for giving a hungry child something to eat?

  7. It’s our tax dollars, not theirs! Maybe we should replace all of the school staff, and go back to intensive screening to find out if they are part Nazi? Do you want to know why the children are doing so poorly? They either emulate their parents, or their teachers. Better get new teachers, before it gets worse…

  8. Let’s all send this kind lady a bit of cash so she can survive and give some money to the little girl who will still be going hungry daily. Her name is Dalene Bowden and the local station is KPVI. Should not be too hard to find her address. After doing so, I will post it here and on Facebook.

  9. The supervisor should be fired. The poor woman who was called a thief should sue the school district. Here’s where the useless ACLU should step in. If she wants her job back, she should get it. In any case the supervisor MUST BE TERMINATED. A RULING SHOULD BE MADE THAT NO CHILD SHOULD BE DENIED FOOD Nationwide!

  10. Our country is failing fast!!! Give this kind lady her job back! Aren’t they suppose to give lunches to a child that’s in need! Oh! They want to bring in the barbarians and take over our country!!! Obama you don’t have a clue! We won’t stand for beheadings in our country, we won’t back down for what is right in the sight of our God!! You, may be getting away for now. But, this kind of barbarism won’t fly with Americans!!! You! Just try and take our country!!! You, Muslem piece of trash!!!

  11. The townspeople should surround the school administration building with picket signs and pitch forks! The signs should demand the Lunch Lady’s reinstatement, while the Supervisor and HR Director are demoted to entry level positions and salaries! The Demotions are justified for their complete lack of common sense, discretion, and compassion!

  12. This is absolutely UNBELIEVABLE! These Administrators should be punished for this decision. Really pisses me off! What the HELL were they thinking?
