Article: Process Evaluation of a Cooking Circle Program in the Arctic: Developing the Mukluk Logic Model and Identifying Key Enablers and Barriers for Program Implementation.

Dedyukina, L., Wolki, C., Wolki, D., Wesche, S. D., Kenny, T. A., & Skinner, K. (2023). Process Evaluation of a Cooking Circle Program in the Arctic: Developing the Mukluk Logic Model and Identifying Key Enablers and Barriers for Program Implementation. Canadian Journal of Program Evaluation, 38(2), 219-242.


This article is co-authored with the Paulatuk, NWT researchers, and academics from three Canadian universities. This study investigates the implementation of the Nutrition North Canada (NNC)-funded cooking circle program in the Inuvialuit (Inuit) hamlet of Paulatuk, Northwest Territories. The objectives of this study are to co-develop a culturally relevant logic model and to conduct a process evaluation of program implementation to identify and assess key enablers and barriers. The co-developed Mukluk Logic Model played an instrumental role in the conceptualization of the process evaluation. The process evaluation results indicated that the long-standing sustainability of the program is related to the consistency of program funding, engaging facilitation practices, and creative utilization of the multi-purpose space for program activities. However, significant barriers limit program sustainability. These include funding amounts and distribution, space and equipment limitations, and human resources challenges. This study illustrates the utility of qualitative process evaluation research in a Canadian Arctic community context and generates important place-based knowledge and insights to better support northern community-based food preparation programs.
