Cornell Sathguru Foundation for Development (CSFD) in association with PJTSAU and Aurobindo Pharma foundation organized a training programme on creating awareness on food and nutrition for kitchen garden women beneficiaries in the villages of Panyal and Badampet of Hathnoora Mandal in Sangareddy district, Hyderabad.

Dr. Jyothsna Assistant prof. Community foods & science dept. PJTSAU has facilitated the training and explained how nutrition can improve the quality of life for the women and their families. She also explained that lot of focus has been given to the food products having additional nutritional benefits, rather than conventional products.

Dr. Jyothsna mentioned that processing of the vegetables & greens can extend their shelf life and make them available throughout the year. Preservation of vegetables by processing not only involves the inhibition of microbial growth but also preserves their color, texture, flavor and nutritive value. The vegetables can be processed into different forms to extend their shelf life such as powders, grits, and flakes. The uses of these powders are unlimited and they can be used to prepare processed products as well as for culinary purposes.

Women beneficiaries participated and shared their reflections on various ways of using greens and vegetables.

Ms. Raja Rajeswari, Associate Vice president, CSFD along with Ms. Dhara, Program coordinator, Mr. Ramakrishna, Project officer, Ms. Suvarna, coordinator from CSFD & Ms. Swetha Village Surpanch, women beneficiaries participated in the programme.
