Remember - kibble has been sprayed with fats to make it smell appealing to dogs. Raw meat has very little odor.
I would offer him the raw food, give him a few minutes to start eating and then, if he doesn't start eating just take the food away. He gets nothing until the next scheduled feeding.
Unless he was starved, missing a few meals isn't going to hurt him.
