Family efforts in the recovery of stunting in Jember are increasingly under pressure during the Covid19 pandemic. Knowledge in food, personal hygiene, education, and the role of local institutions contribute to the family, especially the empowerment of mothers with stunting children. Their empowerment will have an impact on the ability of childcare in dealing with stunting. Stunting recovery efforts need to be accompanied by sensitive nutritional interventions leading to the mothers and strengthening coping mechanisms. Poverty and deprivation are some of the reasons why mothers feel low-quality food is cheap. On the other hand, there are potential local foods in Jember that have not been utilized. The purpose of this study was to determine several main activities that could be used as a framework for community-based maternal empowerment activities in stunting recovery. This research method used quantitative and qualitative approaches. Description of local food sources and their processing, demographics, and maternal behavior, was carried out through focus group discussion activities involving key stakeholders. The findings of this study were necessary efforts to strengthen the management of stunting handling and promotion of stunting recovery through local information media. The implication of such activities was the need to improve institutional coordination and strengthen the participation of all components of rural communities.
