Yoko's Plate caters 23 healthy bento boxes

I was hired by Kwalikum Secondary to cater the teachers’ lunch last week. I made 23 bento boxes (not to worry – that packaging is from clam shells – 100% bio-degradable).  The teachers loved my bento box. I was super busy, but It was my plesure to share my real Japanese bento box.
