No good deed goes unfinished. Bonnie Kimball told a hungry student to bring the money tomorrow. When the student brought the money in the next morning the district manager for Cafe Services, Inc called Bonnie in the office and let her go.

Super ain't so super.

The school needs to look at other providers.
Put pressure on to reinstate the woman who was in accordance with school board guidelines.

Remember folks, we are all enslaved to modern plantation owners that are faceless and evil. All in pursuit of $$$$$$$$$.!

That's just wrong.

All kids should eat free.
I don't understand why a lunch cost $8.00

What ever happened to the lottery money going to the schools?
Since the lottery started, schools have been steadily cutting services.

Kids can't learn when they are hungry.

“Fresh Picks Café, a division of Café Services, Inc., would not authorize an employee to not feed a student or a staff member a meal,” Jaime Matheson, Cafe Services’ human resources director said in a statement. “When a student does not have the funds available to pay for a lunch there are set procedures to ensure the student is provided a meal.”

Matheson declined to comment directly on Kimball’s situation, but implied that the matter breaks down to giving the student the a la carte items rather than the meal of the day.
“When set policies and procedures are not followed corrective action is put in place up to and including termination,” Matheson said in her remarks.

I wish they would give an explanation of the $8.00 lunch.:penguin:

They can say all day long they didn't fire her over $8.00
They fired her over breaking policy.
When you brush away all the fluff, it was over $8.00

I doubt this is the standard school lunch, and that's probably why it's an issue.

My high school had bagels, pizza, snacks, soda, whatever above and beyond the standard hot lunch. My guess is that the kid decided the standard hot lunch wasn't good enough and wanted to go all out with better junk food.

According to this, there is a hot lunch for $2.60. Most schools DO have conditions in effect to loan these lunches out when a kid doesn't have money. This woman chose to let him get all his junk food instead and give away multiple items, which is more than triple the cost of what the school has budgeted to lend out.

That school's lunch details:


I think firing her is excessive, but she did just skirt around a system that tracks who owes money. This is probably just the first time she was caught anyway. Not sure why she wasn't given a serious warning if this is her first offense though.

Personally, I'd rather pay more in taxes and just have every kid provided a free standard lunch. They can still get the $8 food with their own cash that way if they want, but no one is forced to do that.

This.
Because every kid needs to eat.

The elementary schools in my city provide free breakfast for everybody, no questions asked.

Of course my kid, who always ate a hearty breakfast at home, kept mooching off the kids who got the school breakfast. :rolleyes:

I'm guessing the lunch lady was fired because the school district was afraid of losing funding.
Because in the past people have been caught defrauding school food programs. Did the rules become draconian for no reason at all ? Are the politicians and bureacrats all heartless bastards? What is the real reason behind what appears to be an over reaction?

A lunchroom worker in New Hampshire who said she was fired for allowing a student to take food without paying hadn’t been charging the student for anything for several months, her former employer said.

Bonnie Kimball was fired from her job with Café Services in April after a student told her he didn’t have money to pay for the items on his lunch tray. She said she let him take the food for free and he paid his $8 lunch tab the next morning.

Kimball was dishonest and was let go for not following company procedures, Brian Stone, president of the company’s school division said in a statement Monday. She hadn’t charged the student for any part of the meal but told her manager she did. Every student in the line gets a lunch, so there was no reason for her to not charge the account, according to Stone.

“Despite the fact that the student goes through the line frequently according to the employee, this student hadn’t been charged for anything for the previous three months,” Stone said in a video statement posted on YouTube.

In a written statement, Stone said the student was in line with a full lunch, as well as oven fries and two packages of cookies. When the student got up to the cashier, Kimball grabbed a Powerade and added it to his tray. She then let the student take the full lunch allowed by school policy and also four additional items, Stone said.

“Not only should she not have allowed the additional a la carte items, but she did not record or charge any of the items, including the main lunch, to the student account so they could be paid in the future,” Stone said.

When reached Tuesday, Kimball said: “My lawyer advised me not to speak to anyone.” She declined to give the name of her lawyer.

parents of the 17-year-old boy who received the free lunch said Bonnie Kimball, a former cafeteria worker at Mascoma Valley Regional High School in Canaan, sent their son Facebook messages on March 28, the day of the incident. She allegedly told him to pay his $8 tab since the manager who saw her give him the food would be there the following day.

The mother of a New Hampshire high school student who received free food from a lunchroom worker told a local newspaper that her son is not a needy child.

Speaking anonymously to the Union Leader earlier this week, the mother said, “I have three children, and they are all well-cared for and well-fed.

“She did not get fired for feeding a hungry child.”

Bonnie Kimball was fired from her job with Café Services in April after letting a student at Mascoma Valley Regional High School in Canaan have food without paying for it. She said he told her he didn’t have money.

Kimball’s former employer said she hadn’t been charging the student for anything for several months.

The mother shared Facebook messages from Kimball to her son that show the lunchroom worker asked the student to pay on the account so her manager wouldn’t see a problem after the manager watched her give the boy food.

One message from Kimball to the student reads, “So ya wendy got called in the office for us letting you go so wendy told them sometimes you bring cash ect so if you could put like 20 on your account would be great cause they VfB are going to watch us ring you in tomorrow.”

After the student says, “Okay,” Kimball says “we will probably get written up but we can make it look good. Lol.”
