Video: Cafeteria Worker Who Gave Free Food to Needy Boy Rehired

Stephen Eldridge, TeachHUB

Dianne Brame has been reinstated to her position as cafeteria manager at Hudson Elementary School in Webster Groves, Missouri after being fired for giving free school lunches to a needy student.

Brame allowed the student to "charge" lunches when he wasn't able to pay. Although the school allows students to run a tab for lunches, they set a debt limit of $10. Brame allowed the student to charge $45 dollars in lunches before being let go. The student had previously been on the school's federally-subsidized free lunch program, but his application had lapsed and language barriers made reapplication difficult.

Brame's rehiring comes in the wake of a massive outcry from the community against her firing.
