NH lunch lady says she was sacked for giving student free lunch

A spokeswoman for the Manchester-based company said Friday that an employee it did not name violated school and company policy and that a district manager had terminated the person.

"'Do you understand what you did was wrong?"

"This is in strict violation of our Cash Handling Procedures, the School Charge Policy and Federal Regulation governing free meals".

And sure enough, she says he paid the $8 (£6.29) he owed the following day at the Mascoma Valley Regional High School in New Hampshire, US, reports The Mirror. The letter was dated April 9 and said Kimball was sacked on April 4.

In a letter to the editor of the Valley News, Donlon Wade, a student counselor for the Mascoma Valley Regional School District, hailed Kimball and her fellow "kitchen ladies" as "quiet heroes [who] have performed the daily ritual of cheerfully preparing and serving good meals to children in a poor district of great need".

However, Hebert said students with no money should be given the lunch of the day and are prohibited from taking à la carte items. One minute I'm mad and the next minute, I just want to forget it all happened, ' she said. "I guess I'm mourning my job".

Jaime Matheson, human resources director for Café Services, told CNN that a pupil would not be left without a meal in these circumstances.

CNN has reached out to the school but it has not yet returned a request for comment. "I know Bonnie went above and beyond for the kids".

The incident took place just before noon Friday near the school's tennis courts, according to Sgt. There were no initial signs of a second shooter or any injuries at the school, police reported.

Matheson also said separately that she is "not at liberty to discuss the confidential details regarding an employee's employment or termination from employment".

It read: "On March 28, a District Manager was on-site and witnessed a student coming through the line with multiple food items that you did not charge him for". "When established policies and procedures are not followed corrective action is put in place up to and including termination".

Kimball on Wednesday posted the Union Leader report on her firing to her personal Facebook page, and supporters wrote comments of encouragement.

Community members have rallied behind Kimball, with the Valley News reporting that two of her co-workers have resigned in protest.

After never taking a sick day, Kimball says she plans to use this time to hang with her family and look for the right job.

'These guys really took care of our kids.

"I don't believe in taking a kids tray".

'The people working in the school lunch program are employees of Café Services, and Café Services is responsible for employment decisions regarding those employees, ' the district said in a statement.
