WEBSTER GROVES, MO (KTVI) – A happy ending to the story of a cafeteria worker who lost her job after sneaking lunches to a needy child at Hudson Elementary in Webster Groves.
Response to this cafeteria worker’s story has been enormous, receiving national attention and spreading like wildfire on the Internet. This lunch lady’s employer apparently took notice.
In the hours since Dianne Brame went public about losing her job, higher-ups at her company, Chartwells School Dining Services, called her up wanting to talk.
Brame explains, “They came by to pick me up and took me to the conference room, and they let me tell my side of the story and they presented themselves.”
By 2:30 in the afternoon, the former cafeteria manager had her job back.
As for the upcoming holiday, FOX2 previously reported that Brame was baking cookies in lieu of Christmas presents. But with her paycheck back, she’s ready to go shopping for all those grandkids.
Brame explains, “I was holding on to my little money, making sure I could pay my rent in January, but yes, with the reinstatement of my job, I will go on with a normal life. Now they’re gonna get their undershirts, socks and pajamas, those things—and cookies.”
