The Anatomy of Change: Investigative Journalism & the Food Industry
Jun 2, 2016 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm| Free
Upton Sinclair’s seminal novel, The Jungle, shed light on the unsafe conditions of meat production in the US. For all the reform since then, the food industry remains a nexus of economics, marketing, and politics. And of course, nutrition. Some of today’s most important journalism delves into these issues, offering readers the opportunity to better understand the mechanics of the food industry as they struggle to make the most healthy and ethical food decisions.
Join us as we explore these issues in “The Anatomy of Change: Investigative Journalism and the Food Industry,” a conversation with Michael Moss, whose Pulitzer-winning 2009 project on food safety revealed defects in local and federal regulations. Moss is the author of Salt Sugar Fat: How the Food Giants Hooked Us, and the forthcoming Hooked: Food and Free Will. Moss will be speaking with Peter Kim, Executive Director of the Museum of Food and Drink, and Sam Fromartz, founder and Editor-in-Chief of the Food and Environment Reporting Network. Council Board Member and noted food critic Mimi Sheraton will introduce the event. Beer will be provided by Brooklyn Brewery.
This event is part of the Council’s “The Anatomy of Change: Journalism & Justice,” a series that explores the role of journalism in American society and is a part of the Pulitzer Prizes Centennial Campfires Initiative.
