Mason White of the Arctic Food Network, left, shows a model of a country food kitchen to Norman Ford, manager of the Rankin Inlet hunters and trappers organization, on the second day the Nunavut Food Security Symposium Jan. 23 in Iqaluit. Rankin Inlet will become one of the first Nunavut communities to use White’s designs for remote kitchens, camps and shelters, which are intended for use along Nunavut’s snowmobile and hunting trails. The community kitchen, based on a qamutiik design, can be moved to a location by snowmobile and qamutiik and erected by four men in a week by lashing boards together with ropes and covering the structure in a material that can produce solar energy.
