Abstract

Setiawaras Village has potential abundance of cassava. However, the community has not utilized the potential of cassava optimally until these days. This is caused by the price of cassava is relatively low/cheap and considered to be less profitable. Besides, the community still has lack of motivation and knowledge in cultivating and increasing the value of cassava. One of the potential alternatives to cultivate the cassava is the utilization of cassava into mocaf flour with the help of M-Bio technology. The purpose of community service is to utilize the potential of cassava to be used as mocaf flour and produce food products that are profitable. The methods used in this community service are: socialization, counseling, procurement of supporting tools, training and practice, evaluation, while the target groups are the Independent Insan Farmer Group and the Family Welfare Empowerment Group (PKK) Setiawaras Village, Cibalong District, Tasikmalaya Regency. The results of community service through community empowerment are expected to increase the interest and skills of the community so that they can produce mocaf flour, make various foods with the basic ingredients of mocaf flour and increase community income during the covid-19 pandemic.
