Being the signatory of Sustainable Development Goal (SDG II), India is committed to be the global partner in ensuring zero hunger across the world. Further the operationalizationof zero hunger must start from the rural household level wherein the farm families may be ensured to overcome the issues of hunger by offsetting under-nutrition, malnutrition and over-nutrition. In this direction, this ATARI has mooted the action research through KVKs for establishing the ‘Hunger-free villages’ in the selected districts of Uttar Pradesh by intervening with popularizing the Bio-fortified crop varieties, fortification of available food basket and ensuring vitamins and minerals sufficiency by establishing the nutrition garden. Integrating millets in the cropping system and food system of the household shall be another endeavour in this direction. And therefore, holding the recipe-contest of traditional millet based value added product is one such initiative taken by the KVKs of 25 districts of the state where different millets are cultivated in varied proportion. The above three pronged action may emanate desired goal over the time period of 3-4 years.
