This KUMAIN Webinar Series will be conducted to inform and encourage our SUCs and HEIs to consider investing in the food technologies of the Department of Science and Technology-Food and Nutrition Research Institute (DOST-FNRl). Further, this aims to increase the availability of nutritious food products in the local markets and to include the other DOST-FNRl food technologies in our institutional feeding programs.

The objectives of holding KUMAIN Webinar on DOST- FNRI Food Technologies are:
1. To inform SUCs and HEIs about these food technologies and their benefits;
2. To solicit support and encourage potential food technologies adoption by SUCs and HEIs; and,
3. To elicit strong collaboration between the national government, and SUCs and HEIs in including other available FNRI food technologies as a means to effectively address the problem of malnutrition and hidden hunger in our country.

The target participants of this activity are the SUCs and HEIs partners of the CHEd. This KUMAIN Webinar Series is being made possible by the Inter-Agency Task Force on Zero Hunger with the Office of the Cabinet Secretariat, DOST– FNRI, National Nutrition Council, Presidential Communications Operations Office, Commission on Higher Education partner SUCs and HEIs.

The event will be streamed live on the Facebook Pages of the DOST –FNRI, Task Force Zero Hunger and Karlo Nograles.
