This Cafeteria Worker Was Fired For Giving A Student Free Food, Then A Famous Chef Offered Her A Job


In today’s day and age, you need to pay a certain price for everything, even the things that are crucial for a person’s existence. Products you buy at stores, the actions you do in your workplace, and in some cases, even some services. But, the problem arises when you think about the fact that a lot of people that live around the world don’t actually have the money to pay the said amount in order to get some of those necessities. And, this is why sometimes it is a good thing to make an exception to the rule of “you have to pay for everything.” And, once this cafeteria worker decided to do just that for one day, she got immediately fired because of her actions.

The Cafeteria Worker

Before we start talking about this story, we first need to turn our attention to the woman in question, the cafeteria worker named Bonnie Kimball. This woman worked at the Mascoma Valley Regional High School cafeteria in New Hampshire. But, despite the fact that she was working at the high school cafeteria, her employer was a food vendor known as the Fresh Picks. But Bonnie’s employment was quickly terminated after it was discovered that she was giving some food to a student for free back on March 28th, 2019.

Why did she Do it?

At the time of the “transaction,” the student didn’t have any money with him, so he couldn’t pay for the food that he was getting, so Bonnie was a nice lady, and gave him the food for free because she didn’t want to let the student go hungry. She actually knew the student, and she even knew the student’s mother, so she knew that this was a onetime thing, and it isn’t a regular occurrence. Bonnie also said that she could’ve called the student’s mother and she would be happy to pay for the food the next day, but the problem was that she didn’t want to bother the student’s mother at work, and she knew that the student would come and pay for the food the next day. Unfortunately, the student didn’t get to repay the debt.

A New Job Offer

When her employer found out what Bonnie did, they immediately decided to fire her. But, this wouldn’t end here. The news of Bonnie’s dismissal spread pretty quickly, and in a short time, they got to a celebrity chef. When Jose Andres, a celebrity chef, heard about Bonnie’s story, he was amazed by Bonnie’s compassion and tenacity and was ready to add her to his team. Jose was running a non-profit organization that was cooking for the people in need, and he was constantly on the lookout for people that wanted to help others. He thought that Bonnie would fit perfectly in his organization named World Central Kitchen, so he offered her a job.

We don’t have any information if the cafeteria lady, Bonnie, decided to accept the job offer or not, but she sure found her way into many people’s hearts with her good deed. And there’s no question if she would fit in Jose’s World Central Kitchen!
