Students will initiate the project with a survey on dietary patterns of crops grown in India, Nepal and France and interact with local farmers during their online classes to understand their struggles. This sensitization drive will then be applied to work out an ‘Action Plan’ for sustainable development of their communities.

Supported by their families, they will apply their imagination and creativity to invent fusion recipes inspired from those used by communities internationally. To fulfil the aim of supporting the farmers, they will ensure only local ingredients are used in these fusion recipes. These recipes will be shared in Class WhatsApp groups and in a virtual exhibition to be viewed and adopted by the local communities.
