Dalene Bowden, an Idaho middle school cafeteria worker who was fired for giving away a $1.70 lunch to a needy student, told reporters that “she would do it again.”
“I would do it again, I would feed any baby who is hungry,” she said. Bowden said she “would like to go back to my kids at Irvine School if that was worked out for me.”
The news caused nationwide outrage. The Pocatello/Chubbuck School District issued a statement that “it had been speaking with Bowden about giving her back her job,” but Bowden told Anna Kooiman that hasn’t happened.
“I have not talked to the school district,” she said. Watch Bowden’s interview above and SHARE your thoughts in the comments section below.
