VINTAGE POSTER SUNDAY, SAVE A LOAF

This is a neat set of posters.  During WWI (circa 1914-1918), the United States set up the US Food Administration.  The ultimate goal was to avoid rationing by cutting down on the amount of food consumed.  We were not only providing food for our own, but our soldiers and the Allied soldiers as well.

With these posters, they reminded homemakers that if they cut back their usage by just one loaf, it would make a difference.

Hope you are having a great holiday season!
