A kitchen manager claims she was fired from a school in Colorado for giving free lunches to students who could not afford to pay for them.
Della Curry, 35, supervised food preparation at Dakota Valley Elementary School in Aurora, Colorado, but says she was let go because she gave food to students.
The married mother of two was interviewed by CBS Denver, where she said she would see students who were often not signed up for free lunch programmes “crying” because they didn’t have enough money for food.
To qualify for a free lunch, a family of four in Colorado requires an income of around $31,000, while students can qualify for a reduced lunch if their family’s income is below $45,000.
