Community Food Projects

Rebels ITK is at the forefront of implementing a community-based participatory approach to help create impactful food related projects. With a vast array of experience in project management, community-based dietary choice research, event coordination, culinary art and music/video production Rebels ITK has access to a wide variety of tools to create unique and meaningful projects.

For over 10 years Donald worked with and for the Government of Canada, academic and private institutions, arts sector organizations, private, municipal, academic, and local partners on community-based environmental and health-related projects. He also has a creative side producing high-quality photography, music and video productions, and managing artistic events.

Rebels in the Kitchen recently collaborated with Anishinabe chef Justine Deschenes from Kitigan Zibi to create a pilot First Nations cooking show entitled The Offering. The Offering shares healthy First Nation recipes and touches on issues and current events that impact First Nations food security – while doing what First Nations do best which is laugh, tell stories, cook, eat, and tease! The pilot project was funded by Indigenous Services Canada.

The whole point of the pilot is to let people know about how to eat healthy recipes with traditional foods while trying to bring some of the current issues threatening First Nations food security to light, and not just keep them in the dark like they’ve been since 1492 – shocking, I know. We’re due. This is a true reconciliation and accountability project.
