One of the projects under the Malnutrition program is to help the community gain additional income for their families. Thus, the team invited the Department of Science and Technology to conduct a livelihood seminar on food processing among the Women’s Association and residents of the barangay.

The seminar started with food safety and proper food handling. 
The members of the Women’s Association were very active during the discussion and raised several questions on how to improve their livelihood center and their product – Venus Nutri-Squash Pancit Canton. Ma’am Cadag, the speaker during the seminar, was very informative and patient in elaborating all the protocols and standards of a product manufacturer in order to sell the product in bigger establishments. Part two of the seminar was focused on turning corn into delicious goods that are saleable in the market – corn polvoron, corn pastillas and corn fritters. Two more DOST staffs demonstrated the process of making these goods while asking for volunteers from the Women’s members. The members too were very participative in cooking and packing the goods after. Recipes for these products were given to the association and the costing was also discussed.

The team aims to promote more livelihood activities that the residents can do in order to have additional income for their families. We hope to invite more government agencies and NGOs for livelihood trainings and seminars that the residents can attend to enhance their skills. This could lead to additional income in the community.
