Mobile teaching kitchens: A community-led food revolution in India

6:00pm-7:15pm on Monday 29 March

Times shown are in GMT (UTC +0) up to the 27th March. For events on or after 28th March times are in BST (UTC +1).

India faces many challenges in improving food security. More obvious problems like drought are intertwined with a complex social and economic landscape. To be successful, India must meet head on with these challenges. A new, innovative vision of food security is needed.

Changes in education, health and improving female empowerment will be crucial in providing food security for all. Could community-led education be instrumental in instigating such change? Researchers from the TIGR2ESS programme are working at a grassroots level in India to find out.

By empowering communities, particularly women, to take charge of their nutrition and health, a more robust food system could emerge: enter Mobile Teaching Kitchens. This ‘see one, do one, teach one’ teaching method, pioneered by TIGR2ESS partner NNEdPro, works with communities to put the future of India’s food system in the hands of those who rely on it. Community members learn how to cook nutritious meals for themselves and their families then teach others to do the same, serving all sections of society whilst developing business skills.

Join our online Mobile Teaching Kitchen to discover what a community-led food revolution looks like. Find out how learning through storytelling around food is a powerful tool for improving health and livelihoods. Learn how to cook one possible vision of India’s food future.

If you want to join in with the cooking demo, you will need to collect a recipe pack before the event so that you can cook along at home. Packs will be available on a first-come, first-served basis.
