In order to encourage the participants to reconsider how to obtain and provide food assistance in the event of a large-scale natural disaster, we held a disaster prevention forum at the 59th annual conference of the Japanese Society for Food Science and Technology. We presented various meal combinations of processed food based on the concepts of the Japanese Food Guide Spinning Top, which presents information for maintaining physical well-being that can be understood without any specialized knowledge about nutrition. In addition, we introduced menus for groups in need of special assistance such as infants, the elderly and foreign residents (e.g., Muslims). We targeted participants at a disaster prevention event as a way to induce individuals to learn diet self-help techniques, in the hopes that participation in this forum raises awareness of food-related issues in disaster prevention.
