|Don't Hoard Food, vintage poster image courtesy of public domain|
This is a very interesting poster image...it dates from WW1. As with most of these wartime posters, they are about conserving. This one comes from the Canadian Food Board. As food was in short supply and needed for soldiers, hoarding it, stocking up on it, was not allowed. In this poster, they have bags of flour and sugar while a policeman or perhaps government official is just outside the window. Notice the sign on the wall above them... $100-$1000 fine and/or 3 months in prison. Yikes! Kymber? Are you obeying? LOL!
Funny that now those of us that prep (or prepare) for whatever contingency, do the equivalent of what they would call 'food hoarding'. Today hoarding brings up a completely different image than just having a lot of food saved up.
Hope you are having a great weekend, we're feeling a bit better and the sun is finally out today. We'll see what we get done.
