Achieving Zero Hunger is not only about addressing hunger, but also nourishing people while nurturing the planet. Introducing affordable and easily available food alternative is the main objective of this project. Therefore, our school UUM International School choose cultivating mushroom to solve the scarcity of nutritious food source. Mushroom is one of the plant-based alternatives that can be used as a healthy substitute for meat and a mitigating agent for sodium reduction.
The project objectives are the following:
- To look for a source of highly nutritional value and cheaper alternative of meat.
- To develop positive attitude towards working as a group in mushroom cultivation.
- To provide sample recipes from their own harvested mushrooms.
- To benefit the students of UUMIS from the great nutritional value of mushrooms.
