FEEDING more than a hundred children three meals for five days every week is no easy work and Alisa Naikosivo of Lagi Village in Macuata knows what it is like.

Being the head chef of the school's boarding students Mrs Naikosivo ensures that those under her charge are fed well daily.

Mrs Naikosivo heads the cooking parties that comprise parents from the village of Lagi who take turns to cook for the boarding students in the school.

"I am paid $100 every week by the school and for me this is enough to meet my daily needs and expenses," she said.

"I had begun cooking at the school this year and I go with the motto that a well fed stomach will produce an eager learner.

"We cater for a roll of 145 boarding students daily at our table and our meals are made with the special flavour of love."

Mrs Naikosivo said meals for children were strictly followed from a nutritious and healthy menu that had been initially made by the school management.

"I take pride in my work because I know that I maybe feeding the future president or prime minister of the country."
