Week of Science & Technology supports local food for healthy lifestyles

The 2020 National Science and Technology (2020 NSTW) goes on with the celebration, but in virtual mode this time, as we transition to the new standard. The Department of Science and Technology Food and Nutrition Research Institute (DOST-FNRI) is participating in this annual event with the launch of an interactive trivia game on food and nutrition, Nutriflix.
