This food advice poster is now in the public domain and reads as follows.
- Buy it with thought
- Cook it with care
- Use less wheat and meat
- Buy local foods
- Serve just enough
- Use what is left.
As you can see on the sample image, the words, “Food, don’t waste it“, are emphasized in bold, larger letters to stand out and catch the eye. Underneath the “don’t waste it“, in a smaller, lighter text, it says, U.S. Food Administration. The government had yet to add the “and drug” to this branch of the government. The poster is text only and was put out by the U.S. Food Administration. No. 1.
