Food–don’t waste it.


This slide depicts a poster used by the U.S. Food Administration during World War I to encourage the American people and help enact social change. Even a century removed, don’t these simple guidelines ring remarkably true? We would certainly still benefit from national support for a cooperative food effort. Cut out waste, experiment, take a mindful approach to food. Surely we can make such changes in peaceful times, too…all these years later.

(I found the slide for this particular poster by browsing around the Library of Congress’ online archives. An awesome resource if you’re looking for nifty, old images.)
