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
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.
