Ndisanayambe kusinthana kuno, ndinkaganiza kuti zonse zimene tinkachita m’dipatimenti yoona za kadyedwe kake ndi maphunziro a kadyedwe. Ndidapanga zochitika zingapo zomwe ndimaganiza kuti zitha kuchitika m'makalasi a pulaimale ndipo imeneyo inali ntchito yabwino kuti ndigwirepo! Ndinkaganiza kuti zinali zodabwitsa kuti timaphunzitsa makalasi pafupifupi tsiku lililonse la sabata, koma sizinali zomwe ndimawona kuti ndikuchita kwa nthawi yayitali.


Patatha masiku angapo ndikugwira ntchito pano, ndidazindikira kuti dipatimenti yowona zazakudya kuno ku banki yazakudya imachita zambiri kuposa izi.

Chimodzi mwa izo ndi ntchito ya Healthy Pantries, yomwe inandipatsa mwayi woti ndiphunzire ndikuyang'ana mabungwe ogwirizana ndi banki yazakudya kuzungulira derali. Wogwira ntchito, Karee, amachita ntchito yabwino yogwirizana ndi ma pantries kuti adziwe zomwe angafune kuthandizidwa kapena momwe ma pantries ena angathandizire. Mwachitsanzo, pantire zinali zovuta kupeza zokolola.
