– No lunch for you: School district fires kitchen manager for giving students free meals (RT, June 2, 2015):
A Colorado woman lost her job because she decided to play Good Samaritan to a child in need. Della Curry, the kitchen manager at an Aurora elementary school, was fired for giving school lunches to children who didn’t have any money to pay for them.
The Cherry Creek School District fired Curry on Friday for giving students lunches that they couldn’t pay for, KCNC reported.
“I had a first grader in front of me, crying, because she doesn’t have enough money for lunch. Yes, I gave her lunch,” Curry told the local CBS affiliate.
The problem was that the Dakota Valley Elementary School student had no money on her school lunch account, called PayPAMS, but did not qualify for the district’s free and reduced-priced meals.
