Dalene Bowden, School Cafeteria Worker, Fired After Giving Hungry Student Free Lunch

A school cafeteria worker in Idaho says she was fired after giving a hungry middle school student a free lunch. According to NBC, Dalene Bowden, a server at Irving Middle School in Idaho, gave the hot meal to a 12-year-old girl with no lunch money whom said she was hungry. Bowden offered to pay the $1.70 cost of the lunch. Instead, Bowden said, her supervisor placed her on leave — and on Monday, Bowden received a registered letter from the School District informing her she had officially been fired for theft of school property.
