There’s just one week until Pulitzer Prize-winning investigative journalist Michael Moss will be in Winnipeg. Discover the tactics multi-national companies use to get you to eat processed food – and learn the how to 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.” –Michael Moss

Why is The Winnipeg Foundation co-presenting Michael Moss? We want Winnipeg to be a place where community life flourishes – today and for future generations. To do that, the Foundation identifies and responds to the changing needs of our community. One of the areas we fund is food-related programs, and in 2011 we launched Nourishing Potential, a program helping kids access healthy food, cooking skills and nutrition education needed to grow and thrive.
To have a healthy community, you need healthy people – Nourishing Potential is one way we’re helping children and youth. Michael Moss’ presentation will help all Winnipeggers understand what they’re up against each time they go grocery shopping or stop for a snack, giving them the power to make healthier choices.
