At the present moment food is the problem of practically the entire world.

Because of the European war many countries have been unable to raise as much food as they did in previous years. Over forty million men are in the armies that are fighting. These men are no longer producing; they are consuming. Where they have been taken from factories, farm men have taken their places in the factories, and as a result labor on the farms is very scarce.

Our country is called upon to make good a large part of this food shortage. We must do this largely through saving the waste that has heretofore existed in our methods of using food. As a people we have lived most extravagantly in this country. Sooner or later we will have to learn various economies. Why not learn some of them now when, by so doing, we can benefit the entire world?

Our country as a whole can do nothing on this important question without the help of every housewife everywhere. We have prepared this little pamphlet in order to help the housewife help her country. Study the suggestions it contains and put them into use at once.

The Solution Of The Food Problem Lies In The Hands Of The Women Of The World. You Are One Of Those Women. Respond gladly and at once to the call that is being made on you.

Learn economy in food matters;

Learn what foods are the most nourishing, so that you will know what food to buy;

Learn how to cook it;

Learn how not to waste a bit of it.
