Deconstructing Dinner: Reconstructing Our Food System

Financial Support

Produced and recorded in the studios of Kootenay Co-op Radio in Nelson, British Columbia, Deconstructing Dinner was created to address current food issues. The program assists listeners in making more educated choices when purchasing food either for the kitchen or at restaurants.

The media plays a key role in keeping Canadians informed, yet the most important stories about our food supply are not receiving the attention they deserve. Nevertheless, there are countless groups, non-governmental organizations, educational institutions, businesses, individuals and various levels of government that are pushing towards creating more responsible food systems.

Deconstructing Dinner reports on current issues throughout the world of food but maintains a focus on local food systems. The show is not restricted to only current affairs, but probes into the processes and actions to which we have all become so accustomed throughout our daily routine, and "deconstructs" them to achieve a more discriminating awareness.

In late 2010, the show took an indefinite break and a future return remains uncertain. At that time, the show was being broadcast on 40 radio stations across Canada and on stations around the world. All episodes continue to be accessible through the Internet in archived and podcasting formats and your support for this work will help maintain this resource now and into the future.
