Cafeteria Lady

Audio / Produced by The High Calling


When Kevin stopped by his son’s grade school to pay for lunch, he met Linda—and got more than he bargained for. Because this cafeteria supervisor is more than a cook.

Linda told Kevin, “When kids are having a bad day, I encourage them. When a child lacks money for food … when home life turns bad … I mention it to a counselor. Every day I talk to kids about nutrition—which they may never hear otherwise.”

Besides food, Linda serves every student’s potential.

This is Howard Butt, Jr., of Laity Lodge, nominating Linda for cafeteria lady of the year. Linda makes it her business to do far more than her job … in the High Calling of our daily work.

"Whoever welcomes one of these little children in my name welcomes me; and whoever welcomes me does not welcome me but the one who sent me." (Mark 9:37)
