The Food Commandments: “Home-Grown is Best!”

The sight of this poster was common around America during World War Two.

You can say it’s propaganda. That was the original intention, but I can’t think of a better set of food principles, beautiful in their simplicity. . .

The Food Commandments

1- Buy it with Thought
2- Cook it with Care
3- Serve just Enough
4- Save what will Keep
5- Eat what would Spoil
6- Home-Grown is Best!

and. . .

Don’t Waste It
