Roland S. Martin Daily Podcast 12.20.12: LISTEN: Roland Martin Talks With Dianne Brame, The School Cafeteria Worker Who Was Fired For Feeding A Needy Student

Roland Martin talks with Dianne Brame, a school cafeteria worker in Missouri who was fired for feeding a needy student for two months. She has since been reinstated following a national outcry over her firing but she talks with Martin about the incident and lets him know if she regrets her actions.

  • My mother was a school cafeteria worker and I would guess that being that sensitive to the needs of children is a requirement for that position. I don’t know that she ever gave a kid food, but I know we would have people at our Thanksgiving table that we didn’t know or ever see again. I think it is their job to feed the kids first and to get the money second.
