The offer comes after over 80,000 signed an online petition to the district.

— -- An Idaho lunch lady who said she was fired for giving a free meal to a hungry student lacking money to pay is now being offered her job back, according to the school district.

Dalene Bowden first made headlines after she publicly posted a photo to her Facebook page on Dec. 19 of what appeared to be a notice of termination sent to her by the human resources director for Pocatello/Chubbuck School District No. 25.
