Food Will Win the War

Getting immigrants to support the war presented a unique obstacle as the mindset of this population was to start a new life, which meant separating themselves from Europe.

Posters were produced in various languages to encourage recent immigrants to participate in such efforts as food conservation and liberty loans.

Three examples of U.S. foreign-langauge food conservation posters. In Spanish, Italian, and Polish, they ask citizens to eat less wheat, meat, fats and sugar so there is enough for the troops and the victims of war.



An excerpt from a pamphlet on wheat conservation published by the United States Food Administration in 1917.
