About[edit | edit source]
Doris Freedman (née Peterson), most commonly known as Lunchlady Doris and later as Lunchlady Dora, is an overweight, middle-aged, and laconic cafeteria cook at Springfield Elementary. She constantly prepares bad food, serving to students near-inedible foodstuff including whole beef hearts, horse testicles, and shredded newspaper. During school cutbacks, she was using gym mats as a meat substitute, and other non-edible items. Due to the school's poor funding, she also doubles as the school nurse. She was once seen as a mail carrier. She has been implied to have a relationship with Groundskeeper Willie, and she also once dated Hans Moleman. She has a teenage son named Jeremy Freedman and she is a vegetarian as well as an insectivorian.

Trivia[edit | edit source]
- Lunchlady Doris was retired from speaking roles for 10 years out of respect for her original voice actress, Doris Grau, who passed away in December 1995. Upon the character's return to the show in Season 18, she was renamed Lunchlady Dora as a way to honor Doris Grau's legacy. Lunchlady Dora is voiced by Tress MacNeille.
- She is mentioned during the Muntz Quests, in which she is still referred as "Lunchlady Doris". These quests have been written during or some time before September 2012, and the name Dora was made official with the episode "Dark Knight Court", that premiered in March 2013. It could mean that the writers of the dialogue weren't aware of the change yet if the name was changed right after her return as a speaking character.
