Feeding students three meals every day is no easy task for Salote Sukanatabua of Tawake Village, Udu, in Cakaudrove.
Being the chef for boarding students of Naqere Training Youth Centre, Mrs Sukanatabua ensures that she feeds her students well.
Mrs Sukanatabua started cooking for the boarders since the centre was established.
“I was the chef for Naleba Youth Training Centre for 12 years,” Mrs Sukanatabua said.
Throughout her cooking experience for the boarders, she went with the motto that a well fed stomach would produce an eager learner.
She is paid by the Ministry of Youth and Sports.
“I am paid $170 every week by the ministry and for me this is enough to meet my daily needs and expenses,” she said.
“We cater for eight Indo-Fijians students these four weeks of training and our meals are made with the special flavour of love.”
Mrs Sukanatabua said meals for students were nutritious and a healthy menu that had been initially prepared by the ministry.
“I take pride in my work and I am enjoying socialising with the students,” she said.
