Feed The Allies!

ca. 1917

The newly created United States Food Administration, headed by Herbert Hoover during World War I, regulated the supply, distribution, and conservation of food during the war. It’s goal was to save enough to send surplus food to the Allies. Charles E. Chambers’s poster of 1917, printed in several languages, including Yiddish and Italian, targeted immigrants, combining patriotic symbols urging for the conservation of wheat.
