Having seen how people lost their jobs during this pandemic period, I started thinking of how best we can survive and cater for healthy and affordable meals. I thought of menus for locsl mwananchi.
What it does
Enabling Wanjiku on different ways to make cheap but balanced meals for their families
How I built it
Interacted with different classes of people, especially in the low income areas. Tried out locally available foods in the market and coming up with ways to incorporate in the diet.
Challenges I ran into
Most people I talked to could not even afford housing, leave alone food items.
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
Being able to feed several needy families through the initiative
What I learned
If locals can be equiped with agricultural know how on different crops that can grow in their areas, this could go a long way in eradicating food shortage. Most people do not know what a wrll balanced diet comprises
What's next for Chakula affordable
To be able to reach more families and educate them on importance of well balanced diet. To start an affordable food outlet.
