There is no free lunch in Pocatello. The Idaho Statesman is reporting that a lunch lady in the Pocatello/Chubbuck school district was fired for giving a student with no money a free lunch.

Here are the details.

Last week, Dalene Bowden, a food service worker at Irving Middle School, was placed on leave after she gave a free hot lunch to a 12-year-old girl who said she was hungry and didn’t have any money.

There is currently an online petition with over 2,000 signers requesting that the school district give Dalene Bowden her job back.
