This custom canvas tote- created from MHS collections- has WWI USA food rules: "FOOD: 1- buy it with thought 2- cook it with care 3- use less wheat & meat 4- buy local foods 5- serve just enough 6- use what is left. DON'T WASTE IT"
This was originally created as a poster by the U.S. Food Administration during World War I, circa 1917, as a way to address the matter of civilian food supply. Good advice that still applies today! Our Food Rules Canvas Tote has the Maine Historical Society logo (MHS) on the reverse side as well as side panels and a flat bottom making it perfect for carrying groceries. Also makes a great gift for the foodie in your life!
