Our Chennai staff have an exciting new initiative to promote entrepreneurship, healthy eating, and well-being at our Chennai hubs. We have started Cloud Kitchen Courses for women in our communities where they will learn to cook everyday meals with healthy substitutes like millets and vegetables. They also learn about the nutritional values of all of these foods.
Ponmozhi, our cloud kitchen trainer, says that “Everyone goes to work in our communities, and women often choose easier options to cook faster, which are not always healthy, leading to diabetes and obesity. So, in our classes, we teach women to substitute rice with millets and to include vegetables rich in nutrients in all the dishes. They learn to cook smarter and faster.”
Our goal is for women to take this up as a small business, either as a group or individually.
