|Fight Food Waste, vintage poster image courtesy of wikicommons|
This is a fascinating poster image. The USDA put this out for the Bureau of Home Economics, and as they always do, it promoted conservation. It also had a bit of a military tie in, for WWII, with it starting out "Join the Ranks"...but then the words are as true today as they were then.
"Buy to save, Serve to save, and Store to save.
Fight Food Waste in the Home...it's funny that I found this image, just the other day, 2nd Man and I were noticing that when we see some of our neighbors trash bins (this is in town and we have to line them all up in front of our house once a week, lucky us, ha) there is so much food that is thrown away. I couldn't tell you the last time we threw away food. We either cook small enough batches to eat it all at one meal, or we put up what we don't use to save for future meals.
We can only imagine what stores must throw away...
