Abstract: This research project aims to study the social function of the community kitchen in the northern context of Nunavik. Community kitchens can be viewed as a strategy for combatting food insecurity, but also as a gathering place for the community where participating members learn to cook, share experiences and socialize. While many scientific articles have dealt with this phenomenon in major Canadian cities and in South America, we decided to study the subject in the context of Inuit communities, thus making a contribution to the existing literature on this topic. We conducted a one-month empirical research in the Nunavik communities of Kangiqsualujjuaq and Kuujjuaq. Besides participating in the community kitchen, we conducted semi-directed interviews with its coordinators and its participants. The results show that the community kitchen in Nunavik is conducive to the creation of social relations among its members. The initiative can therefore be considered as a means of building and strengthening social bonds and social cohesion in Nunavik communities.
