With the theme "Ugaliing magtanim, sapat na nutrisyon aanihin", the Agricultural Training Institute supports the celebration of Nutrition month 2018.

This is a yearly campaign held every July to create greater awareness among Filipinos on the importance of nutrition. Presidential Decree 491 or the Nutrition Act of the Philippines mandates the National Nutrition Council to lead and coordinate the nationwide campaign.

This year, the selected focus of the Nutrition month campaign is on food gardening. It aims to contribute to improved nutrition through improved food access by increasing the numbers of households, schools, and communities engaged in food gardens.
