Heritage Radio Network On Tour
Our Food System, Our Future #2: Denmark & Communal Dining
Heritage Radio Network’s Nora Peachin is traveling the world for one year in search of communities organizing to make our food systems more equitable, and she’s bringing you along with her. In the second episode of the series, Nora visits Denmark to learn about community kitchens.
In this episode, I speak with staff at community kitchens Folkehuset Absalon, Kraftwerket Folkekøkken, and One Bowl and soup kitchen Morgencafé for Hjemløse.
Also interviewed are members of SAND and Projekt Udenfor. Another inspiring organization in Copenhagen, not interviewed for this episode: Hus Forbi, a newspaper cooperatively-owned and sold by homeless people in Copenhagen, telling their stories.
Professor Wesley Dean’s Twitter thread talks through some of the interviewed University of Copenhagen professors’ findings on food insecurity. Or, read the 2022 article here and research findings from 2015 here.
Nora’s research is funded through a grant from the Thomas J. Watson Foundation. The Watson Foundation offers one-year independent research fellowships for graduating college seniors.
