Teacher Problems, #9

Back in the day, teachers may have received apples from students. In Indonesia, entire classes of students celebrate certain events (such as getting through reciting the entire Al Qur’an) by giving all teachers food boxes. This is a common affair, but today I broke a record. Today alone, I received THREE food boxes and some additional kue, or snacks, from my school and students. I have enough rice to feed a family of 6!

(I’m currently thankful for the multitude of neighbors willing to take the surplus food off my hands.)

Teacher Problem: Thanks for the food students and MAN, but I cannot eat this much! What does one DO with all this food?!? (Only 1 of 3 food boxes are pictured.)
