Smart Food processing for household nutrition and income generation was the focus of an outreach event at Tofa Local Government Area, Kano State.

Participants also witnessed a sorghum doughnut demo. Photo shows the 26 participants in their customized hijabs with improved sorghum seed packages that they can try out on their farms.
