“Food Question in a nutshell is this: that the United States, with a population of one hundred and ten million, was until lately an importer of foodstuffs, but must now, owing to the exigencies of war, must feed not only itself but fifty million people of its allies as well. The non-fulfillment of this task means nothing short of defeat” -Federal Food Administrator for Maryland
Exhibit compiled and curated by Grace DiAgostino, in collaboration with Jason Baker, both Pathways Student Trainees at the National Archives at Philadelphia.
