FOOD FOR FREEDOM MONTH
The month of November has been designated as "Food For Freedom Month"
as part of a long-range educational program on food sponsored by the War
Food Administration in cooperation with the Office of War Information, the
Office of Price Administration, and the War Advertising Council.
The "Food Fights For Freedom" program is essentially a program of helping
people to understand why it is important for each individual to produce, con-
serve, share, and play square with food. The program erects a background
of, general information on the food situation, so that people will have a better
understanding of why they are being asked to meet farm goals, grow Victory
Gardens, can food at home, eat the right food, and not waste food.
It is vitally essential that all Americans continue to do all of the things
necessary to make food fight, and in the belief that they will do so if they have
the facts, November will signalize the opening of an educational program to
bring to every man, woman and child the facts about our food.
The facts about our food supply which every American should know include
facts about the amount of food we produce, the amount of food that goes to
civilians, the armed services and our allies, the effect of increased purchasing
power on our food supply, the amount of food wasted every year, the necessity
for rationing and price control, and the need for being ready to accept constant
change in our diet. a
If every American gains a deeper appreciation of these facts, he will be in a
position to take these actions more readily:
1. Produce more foods of the right kinds.
2. Conserve food, avoid waste.
& Eat the right foods.
4. Substitute plentiful for scarce foods.
5. Share food cheerfully. Accept no rationed foods without giving up ration

6. Help keep food costs down by paying only legal prices.
7. Take part in community food projects by serving on the nutrition com-
mittee, the ration board, the Victory Garden Club, or the community
The task of educating people in the reasons why they need to take these actions
gets under way in November through the newspapers, magazines, radio stations,
outdoor-advertising facilities, and the governmental and private community
All of these facilities will concentrate on the job of giving people more back-
ground information on food, and will ask people to help make food fight for
freedom by doing these our things:
1. Study the facts about the use of American food In wartime.
2. Help in the task of making each Individual In the community conscious
of the role he or she can play in the battle of food by taking on the
responsibility of acquainting them with the facts about food. The
citizens' food information committees include community service mem-
bers of the War Price and Ration Boards, Nutrition Committee chair-
men and Consumer Interest Committee chairman of the Local Defense
Councils. Guided by Information available In the Community Mobiliza-
tion Handbook, these people will organize citizens' food committees to
undertake the educational job on food. They will be vitally In need
3. Pick up at the nearest retail food store and post in the kitchen a copy
of the official pin-up chart which will serve as a daily reminder.
4. Make this Thanksgiving more of an occasion for expressing gratitude for
our food and giving thanks that there is enough food to fight fr
