Reply Surfblue says: May 18, 2019 at 9:49 pm Is New Hampshire a Democrat state. Why is it $8 for lunch, that's nuts. Like I've been saying Democrats do not help you Reply Her Name is Akane says: May 18, 2019 at 9:56 pm Back in the 1960's they gave poor kids lunch, but then it cost $0.25. I didn't eat cafeteria food. I had 2 paper routes. I made about $35.00 a mo. Reply Friend says: May 18, 2019 at 10:29 pm What in the LL Cool J. is going on here???????!!!!!! Hire her back now! Reply jean skilling says: May 18, 2019 at 10:38 pm $8 really. Reply CHOCLODITE LENSMAN says: May 18, 2019 at 10:42 pm This must be a geographical oddity – in Indiana this kind of behavior would be rewarded – as long as the person giving the free lunch would have kicked in $8 for the student. Regardless, they probably throw away more food at the end of the day than what she gave away. Duh. Reply SPARKY KESLER says: May 18, 2019 at 10:49 pm That's bull crap the fire her she was doing a good deed feed the hunger Reply Midnight says: May 18, 2019 at 11:03 pm There is a difference between giving someone free food than free booze, really disgusting that someone got fired because giving food to a kid or any person, I guarantee more is dumped every day for not being used. I don't have very much but I would not see someone go hungry, some of us know what that's like, you blessed if you haven't and next time you think life sucks just remember that.

That child should have just starved, obviously. Reply hope less says: May 18, 2019 at 11:28 pm When I was a teen working fast food they wouldn't let me eat anything. At the end of the day if any food was not bought they would make us throw it all away, they said it was so people would not make extra before the end of the day. We threw away so much food every day it was ridiculous. Reply Jason Morris says: May 19, 2019 at 12:21 am That's just crazy Reply MoeZeppelin says: May 19, 2019 at 12:49 am no mention of the school name or the vendor name? $8 for a school lunch? i call bullchit on this one 🙂 Reply wheelmanstan says: May 19, 2019 at 1:05 am 8 dollar lunch?

Reply King 0f Gotham says: May 19, 2019 at 2:05 am Oh too bad it wasn't a black woman helping out a black student She would of got a raise or commendation Reply 1966bluemax says: May 19, 2019 at 2:17 am Well, you have to get the money somewhere. Better teach kids they are not entitled to anything this early. Even food. Reply Katherine Chapman says: May 19, 2019 at 2:26 am Because the food service is farmed out to for-profit corporations. When I was little, our lunch was homemade delicious. Later it was more industrial, but it was made for us by our own lunch ladies, and they had discretion to give away food if necessary. It's dehumanizing to take away all power from employees and managers. Corporate control sucks. Reply Cecilia Norris says: May 19, 2019 at 2:31 am Seriously?! That sounds like BS. Oh, and 8 bucks for a school lunch, good grief. That's the real crime. Reply Chief Dogman says: May 19, 2019 at 3:03 am What do schools do with leftovers? It is throwing money away if the food is tossed. How did the school administration find out she did this? Reply occhamite says: May 19, 2019 at 3:34 am Perino's makeup is ridiculous. Don't these billion-dollar networks have a makeup artist on hand to look at the personalities on camera before they go on the air, to catch this sort of thing? Reply Erin apple says: May 19, 2019 at 3:36 am I had to live on a cookie and water in my high school lunch, because my parents made too much money I didn't qualify for free or reduced lunch meanwhile all of the fat and muscle bastards had a huge plate.Nobody knows how kids have to suffer. But hey it must be better than Mexico. I bet the south Americans coming here get a free lunch. Reply ALCONQUESO says: May 19, 2019 at 3:40 am 2 for $5 at Mcdonalds! $8 wtf! Reply SIXPACFISH says: May 19, 2019 at 3:43 am Now that the schools have stopped deep frying tater tots (or anything else). They ain't worth eating. Reply STDrepository says: May 19, 2019 at 3:51 am Our school lunches were $2.75. Slice of pizza, milk or orange juice, and a scoop of fries. Really good. Reply Steve Legend says: May 19, 2019 at 7:37 am Its stealing, if she wanted to be generous should have put her hand in her pocket and paid for it. It being paid the next day is bs, coz maybe it was only paid because of the firing/attention, would it have been paid otherwise? This is just emotive crap that i expect from the Left, not conservatives. I will say $8 is pretty steep, that should be the real story Reply Aily Dene says: May 19, 2019 at 8:04 am So it's OK to let a kid to go hungry Reply King Yellowman says: May 19, 2019 at 8:39 am Ironic you people are freaking out about a teacher being fired for giving out a free meal but you are against handouts Reply Edward Mitchell says: May 19, 2019 at 9:24 am I don’t think we should give free lunches but Jesus don’t fire someone over it bet they throw out more than 8bucks worth every day Reply NoobSoldier2006 says: May 19, 2019 at 9:27 am She can't give out free food. She could've pay for the students until the student pays her back. This seems to be a big deal because it was 1 meal. People would want her to be fired if there were more students. Reply Jason G says: May 19, 2019 at 9:47 am Terrible Reply Russell St.Clair says: May 19, 2019 at 10:00 am $8 for a school lunch really! but then again we're talking about the same people setting prices in schools who couldn't turn a profit with a whorehouse.

People in prison get free breakfast, lunch and dinner. Y not the kids to. Reply Chase Clarity says: May 19, 2019 at 12:25 pm Wow she should be hired by a famous chef or celebrity! Someone famous should step in and hire her Reply MusicMan says: May 19, 2019 at 12:28 pm I thought the Liberal mind believes in free stuff? Reply NPC J says: May 19, 2019 at 12:35 pm So I am confused. A business says not to do something. It is their policy. So instead of following it we will sensationalize it and make it about feelings. She did a good thing but it wasn't what the company she agreed to work for wanted. Also why couldn't we wait to here the Employers side? Emotions thats why. Reply DONALD 2020 says: May 19, 2019 at 12:40 pm School lunches were twenty five cents back in the good ole days! Reply Jeff Bearden says: May 19, 2019 at 12:42 pm Shame on the school, not only for their actions against the lunch lady, but for charging 8 freaking bucks for the slop that comes out of a school cafeteria!!!

The crime is why the lunches are so expensive. Why do children have to go without food, in the richest country in the world? So they can't afford it….. that means they should remain hungry? That's not right! And I'm a Conservative!! Reply Donald Trump’s Fanboy #MAGA Clubhouse says: May 19, 2019 at 1:28 pm 8 dollars for school lunch? That’s the real crime here.

Reply Joe Tairei says: May 19, 2019 at 1:46 pm The student paid it back the next day. No harm, no foul. Why fire someone over such a trivial thing? Reply Tablet One says: May 19, 2019 at 2:49 pm Mom often volunteered at my school cafateria and paid for children's lunches who she saw day after day sitting without eating. This lady did what's RIGHT and told it's WRONG. Sounds all too familiar… Reply Mr Guy says: May 19, 2019 at 2:52 pm But illegal immigrants can get free services. It was a one time thing- the kid paid it back. Sounds to me that the school is being run by democrats. Reply popweaselcrunch says: May 19, 2019 at 3:01 pm Why not make all lunches at school free? Oh thats right public schools getting defunded because DeVos is in favor of private schools that are pay to play. Giving free food out sounds like Socialism and we cant have that. MAGA!

Reply Darrylx444 says: May 19, 2019 at 4:21 pm So many sad and pathetic comments, that reveal unrelated petty personal grudges. Let's see if I can summarize them, in no particular order: Blaming Obama, Hillary, leftists, illegal immigrants, transgenders, Democrats, AOC, Omar, Satan, mainstream media, etc. My apologies if I left some out.

Hurry up Jesus. Reply Sue Sally says: May 19, 2019 at 6:32 pm I work in a school. the food is wasted more, then it is eating, because what was not eating is thrown away at the end of the day, and there was a lot of food everyday was just throw away !

D says: May 20, 2019 at 11:01 am The crime here is the $8 lunch! Reply Doug Stephen says: May 20, 2019 at 1:02 pm I’ve always had a problem with kids not getting to eat because they “don’t have the money” it’s not fair for the student to do with out because the parent didn’t send lunch money. I worked at a prison and watched inmates get free food everyday. I think the kids should get the free food and the inmates should have to pay for their own. I know there will be someone out there that will say “but they can’t work and have no way to pay for it.” To that I say, if the inmate can go to the commissary and buy $70+ worth of junk every month, they can pay for their food in the chow hall. In my son’s school, if you don’t have money you get 2 slices of bread a slice of cheese and a milk. I did some investigating and was told by lunch room professionals that they have to toss out food at the end of the day that would have easily fed the few students that didn’t have lunch money for that day. It’s not right. Feed the kids! Reply Alice Moore says: May 20, 2019 at 2:25 pm Eight bucks for a school lunch? I could pack a lunch for a week and not spend that. Reply Common Sense says: May 20, 2019 at 3:12 pm They can’t charge the meal to their account? 🙄 This school is a JOKE! Reply MBFLA45 says: May 20, 2019 at 3:14 pm People are acting like this is a generous act. Why didn't she reach into her pocket and pay for the lunch if she's so good-hearted? Now someone will start up a GoFundMe page and she'll make a pile of money. Hmmm… Reply JT Bynum says: May 20, 2019 at 5:47 pm Eight dollars for a school lunch? I would definitely be bringing my lunch Reply Catalina Villagrana says: May 20, 2019 at 7:04 pm Will yeah giving free lunch to kids every day is stupid thats way they have there parents to feed them if you feed them all the time that means the parents are saving money and taking advantage of this im not saying its wrong but its not right either.but shouldn't did it in the first place Reply Kelly C says: May 20, 2019 at 8:55 pm Ok. Wait a minute. $8.00 for lunch? What's being served at that school? Beef Wellington and Lobster tail?? Reply Kootenay Kracker says: May 20, 2019 at 10:39 pm $8 is probably used to subsidize illegal alien jose's sanctuary lunch ,………… Reply GuildBankLooter says: May 21, 2019 at 12:00 am Glad the thief got fired.. Reply Abel1120 conlget says: May 21, 2019 at 11:42 am this is American kids.. their future.. and still they are making fun of the future… hahaha….. which is why china will win.. Reply Peter Martini Jr says: May 21, 2019 at 2:48 pm I really do not understand why most people think what this lady did was noble and commendable. What did she do that was so great? She gave away something that was not hers nor did she have the authority to do so. If she paid for the lunch and then gave it away, great. That would have deserved praise. Maybe even do a story showing her kindness. Everyone should always give to those less fortunate. But playing Robin Hood and taking something that was not hers and giving it away is nothing that deserves praise. While I do not think she should have been fired, she did deserve a reprimand and a change in position. But she definitely did not deserve any praise. Now as far as the lunch costing $8, as a college student I can tell you $8 is barely enough to buy anything. Just a salad in my school is over $10. Reply Mir Saucyyy says: May 21, 2019 at 5:03 pm They’re Toxic🤮 Reply Mickey Kindley says: May 21, 2019 at 6:47 pm She is not dishonest and we should help her Reply show bread says: May 21, 2019 at 7:32 pm She had every right to use her money to buy that lunch , but she had no right to steal from the school to give that kid free food ! Reply Eli M says: May 21, 2019 at 10:48 pm Oh please ..no kid should go hungry in any school in USA…and that vendor obviously has fudged his documents to make her look like a thief….his pathetic attempt to hide his greedy bottom line!..

Reply CipherBytes says: May 22, 2019 at 5:59 pm Amazing how people don't wait for the whole story. This is why people make such poor decisions and judgement. No student is refused a lunch by policy. EVERY student gets a lunch, regardless if they can pay or not. However, ADDITIONAL ITEMS must be charged. She was not charging him for those ADDITIONAL ITEMS and not doing so for months. Kindness is ensuring that every student gets a meal. That is ensured by policy. Giving away extras is theft. That is why she was fired. Don't believe everything you hear on youtube and the news. Make sure you get the ENTIRE story first. Great job, Fox……only the other channels are fake news? Bleh… Reply Private One says: May 23, 2019 at 8:39 pm Lies again from a trump supporter.
