What's Happening In Your World
A school cafeteria worker in Missouri lost her job after giving away free food to a student in need. Dianne Brame, 60, had been sneaking hot meals to fourth grader who always came without money to lunch at Hudson Elementary in Webster Groves, St Louis County. The boy had previously been on the free lunch program but Brame believes his parents didn't understand how to reapply for the new school year. When Brame's employers found out that she had been giving out food against regulations she lost the job she had loved for the past two years. Brame told Fox2now how much she enjoyed her work: 'I knew kids by their names, I knew their likes and dislikes, so it was just fun.' When she noticed the one boy always had the standard plain cheese sandwich, which is given to children with no lunch money, Brame began to worry. 'Kids can be cruel to see this kid eating cheese sandwiches day after day after day. [They said] "You don’t have any money in your account, that’s why you have to eat cheese sandwiches." And my heart just couldn’t tolerate that, so I broke the rule.' she told Kmov. So Brame began bending regulations to feed the boy hot meals. But this was dimly viewed by her employers, Chartwell’s School Dining Services. Brame explained: 'I let his account get over $45 which I’m only supposed to let it get over $10, and I started letting him come through my lunch line without putting his number in, and they look at that as stealing. I thought it was just taking care of a kid.' Her supervisor gave Brame a stark choice - to take a demotion at another school or lose her job. As she explains, she could only take a job within walking distance so told her supervisor to sack her. 'My husband died in February, I lost my home, car got repo’ed,' Brame told Fox, 'Hudson is in walking distance from me, so I took the firing. Fire me.' When this story was first reported Brame said she wouldn't have changed a thing about her dismissal. But following a huge response from the local community, on Friday Brame was reinstated to her job. Higher-grade Chartwells' employees overruled Brame's supervisor and the company has described the incident as 'an unfortunate misunderstanding.' A statement said: 'Chartwells is pleased to have resolved this misunderstanding together with the employee and she will be at work, as usual, this coming week.' With news of Brame's rehiring, her son wrote an emotional tribute on Fox2now, claiming: 'What she was doing at the school for that little boy did not surprise me at all. It is who she is. 'A strong, beautiful, and compassionate woman. When my brother and I asked her about lawsuits and tightening the screws on her employer in typical Mom fashion she said no but I would like to have my job back because even though I broke the rules I did not do anything wrong.'

  1. @michelle cobbs,, with all due respect. TO HELL WITH REGULATIONS! There is no way this woman should have been fired for feeding a hungry child. nothing happens in my father's world by mistake. He has something better for her!

  2. I keep hearing negro's throw around that word "slave" and people was real slave…not this I smoke drugs slave or the he know what the pinch on my clitoris is or he can control my orgasm….when you fore father and mothers was slave the white master could say come here nig$er and get on your knee and suck my dic…and he's talking to the men…and he's in front of every one..and say no sir I don't want to do that…and for that his master take him out in front of every one and burn him up jus set him on fire….then come to the next man that just seen his cousin or good friend burnt alive……they could just come get your 12 year old daughter and take her off and have sex with her.. that what they did and if you say no she is not doing they take you and put you in a pin with some wild dogs to eat you up in front of every negro…..they could come get your wife and do what every they want to her….he could shyt in your face and if you say no he would go get to horse one going east and one going west put one arm to a horse and beat the horse until…..so when you negro talk about slavery you better own you can even believe slave and someone was treated like that….kill you just to see you dead just because he want to kill a negro today.

    The Words of Jesus " what you do to the Least one of Mine, you don't also unto Me…The worker will be Blessed for she has a heart of Compassion. How can you refuse Anyone food? That person has no Love what so ever in their heart. Lord have Mercy on him/her.

  6. That is sad.God Blessed this Lady.Need more people like Her

  7. LORD Your eye runs to and fro throughout the whole earth, to show yourself strong on the behalf of them whose heart is perfect toward you. Lord I commite this woman unto you father you show yourself strong on her behalf.

  8. THAT'S A DARN SHAME!!! NO CHILD SHOULD GO HUNGRY!! GOD BLESS THE CAFETERIA WORKER. SHAME ON MANAGEMENT/ SCHOOL SYSTEM OF WEBSTER GROVE. JUST SHAMEFUL BEHAVIOR.

  9. Wow… See what happens when nice people do nice things. People are so disgusting… And cold

  10. They throw away the left overs anyway. That's crazy. She was helping a child.

  11. Yes the cafeteria worker should have followed the guidelines/rules however; you have to lover her heart. There needs to be more people who care about the less fortunate. Who knows what the child eats (if anything) after he/she leaves school.

  12. This is a shame! How can you fire someone for feeding a hungry student, yet pass them along with the no student left behind program and they can't read above a third grade level! Where is the justice in this situation! They need to give her job back.

  13. This is very sad and I wonder if the school could have handled this with a little more sensitivity. I think that her heart was in the right place…that being said there are other ways that she too could have handled it. If she felt that the parents didn't know how to apply, couldn't she have let the school social worker know? That's their job isn't it. DSS will send people to your home to fill the applications out for you, read it and just have you mark an 'X' if you can't write.
