Indonesia World Food Day 2016, the Ministry of Agriculture Republic of Indonesia will hold a 3-day exhibition to raise awareness of food security to the public at large. The aim is to ensure that each of us know how to manage the issue of food security and therefore contribute toward building a strong national food security.
For Rasamasa, one of the most interesting programs will be the competition on creating menu, which are participated by winners of the same competitions held locally at the provincial level. This program is run by the National Food Security Agent (Badan Ketahanan Pangan) in collaboration with the local PKK in all provinces. We would hope to be able to get our hands on these recipes once the program ends, so we can share them here at Rasamasa. So watch this space.
Apart from menu competition and demonstration, there will also be exhibition of technology innovation, and a Diplomatic Tour that invites foreign ambassadors from neighboring countries to visit various areas of agriculture around Boyolali.
For those who do not know Boyolali, let us introduce you to the place through its foods:
President Joko Widodo will open the exhibition, whilst the program will close with a casual walk joined by people from Boyolali.
This exhibition is supported by the Ministry of Agriculture, Ministry of Maritime and Fisheries, Ministry of Forestry and Environment, Kemkoninfo, Provincial Government of Central Java, Regency of Boyolali, and Food and Agriculture Organisation of the United Nation (FAO-UN).
