Vintage "Don't Waste Food" poster
Here is an unusual poster for Sunday.  It's not necessarily for the Victory Garden campaign, but it shares a common theme.  The purpose of Victory Garden's were to conserve food for the war effort, and it only makes sense that a campaign to not be wasteful would make sense as well.

Buy wisely (only buy what you need?), cook carefully (I would assume they mean don't mess it up or cook too much?) and eat it all, well, eat it all.  It goes without saying that this would be just as relevant today, we are a very wasteful society.  It would be nice to see people trying to not to waste food.  We conserve water, we conserve electricity, why not conserve food?

Thanks and hope you enjoy!
