The food on your plate today is more than just a combination of inert ingredients heated – it is a reflection of various structural forces at work.

Dr. Njoki Ngumi of the Nest Collective, Joseph Kobuthi of The Elephant, and Professor Kimani Njogu of Twaweza Communications critically examine western misconceptions about African food systems, the effects of colonization on our food and farming systems in Kenya and beyond, and the role of the state, individual, and society in decolonising our farms, kitchens, and plates.
