CBS 2 Hero Lunch Lady Love

Updated: Thursday, December 19 2013, 08:31 AM CST
Pat Drumbarger does so much more than give hot lunch.  She warms the hearts of hundreds of kids she sees at Johnson School of the Arts in Cedar Rapids. Known for her famous hugs, "Grandma Pat" as she's called, says "These kids just tug at your heart strings you know, I've made some amazing little friends in the 11 years I've been here."
"Sometimes, for some of these kids their grandparents live far away, she's filling that void for them," says 4th grade teacher Charrisse Cox.
Student Daija says, "Everytime we're in the lunchline she's always smiling and giving kids hugs."  Grandma Pat.  Lunch Lady.  CBS 2 Hero.CBS 2 Hero Lunch Lady Love
