Celebrated food activist Jon Steinman, creator of the radio program Deconstructing Dinner, is guest speaker for the West Kootenay Naturalists meeting on Monday, Feb. 24 at the Genelle Hall.
Deconstructing Dinner explored local and global food systems, involving topics such as wheat, tomato and pork production. The program presented healthy and ethical alternatives to harmful food practices.
Steinman, who has worked in the restaurant business across Canada and in France, is passionate in his defense of our right to food security. The author of regular food columns for a number of Canadian publications, he was a finalist for a Jack Webster Award in broadcasting.
Steinman lives in Nelson where he is actively involved in the community-owned Kootenay Country Store, the largest of its kind in Canada.
The public is welcome to attend the 7 p.m. free presentation as well as the potluck dinner at 5:30 p.m. Diners are asked to bring your own plate, cup and cutlery.
