Homemakers & the War Effort
This 1942 Cornell war emergency bulletin entitled Eat Well to Work Well,
encouraged people to support Uncle Sam by eating particular foods. Cornell
received a letter from the Director of the Office of War, Nutrition Services,
requesting that the bulletin be translated into Polish and Italian so
that it could be distributed to industrial workers in metropolitan, immigrant
communities. The Nation was unified in the war effort, and home economists
were ready to do their part.
