Tracie McMillan is the author of The New York Times bestseller, The American Way of Eating: Undercover at Walmart, Applebee’s, Farm Fields and the Dinner Table. Mixing immersive reporting, undercover investigative techniques from a year spent undercover in food production and “moving first-person narrative” (The Wall Street Journal), McMillan’s book argues for thinking of fresh, healthy food as a public and social good—a stance that inspired The New York Times to call her “a voice the food world needs” and Whole Living magazine to name her a “Food Visionary.” She has written about food and class for many publications, including The New York Times, The Washington Post, Harper’s and Slate.
