Lunch lady fired for giving hungry kids free meals

A former Colorado school district kitchen manager claims she was fired Friday for giving free lunches to hungry students, according to reports.

“I had a first grader in front of me, crying, because she doesn’t have enough money for lunch. Yes, I gave her lunch,” Della Curry told CBS4 in Denver. Curry worked at the Dakota Valley Elementary School in Aurora, Colo.

“It is policy to never give out free food,” Curry told The Denver Post Tuesday. “That is all fine and dandy until you have little kids not on the free and reduced program and their account goes negative.”
