A Pulitzer Prize-winning investigative journalist will visit Winnipeg later this month to discuss how big name companies are getting Canadians to eat more processed foods every day.

Michael Moss is the author of In Salt Sugar Fat: How the Food Giants Hooked Us. In the book, Moss reveals how companies use salt, sugar and fat to allure the public and how consumers can fight back.

“Knowing everything that the food companies are doing to get you to do their bidding when you walk in the front door of a grocery store is an incredible playing field leveler,” Moss said.

Moss’ public lecture on Thursday, February 27, is being presented by The Winnipeg Foundation and Food Matters Manitoba as part of the Growing Local Conference.

The lecture will be held at the Masonic Centre located at Confusion Corner, followed by a Q&A session. Tickets are $30, or $15 for attendees of the conference.
