Paralleling the federal government's program of increased production of food was their program to curtail waste. Families were encouraged to eat their leftovers and "lick their plate clean."
Poster was accompanied by a card with the following text printed in black: "YOU CAN HELP TO KEEP OUR NATION WELL FED BY DISPLAYING THIS POSTER. Military needs are taking more of our commercially canned food this year than any other since the war began. This means there will be less left for civilians in this country. We must look to American women to make up the difference by canning more food at home. This poster will help to encourage home canning thus assuring our citizens of more of the foods they will need next winter. Will you help to keep our Nation well-fed by displaying it prominently? THANK YOU!"

WWII Propaganda Posters Urging Conservation, Limitation, and Rationing by Americans on the home front to support the war effort: The United States did not suffer the same kinds of war deprivations that Europe did, although there were wartime shortages. During World War II it became necessary for the U.S. government to ration some foods, rubber, gas, and even clothing. Americans were asked to limit and conserve on many niceties and necessities.Wartime travel, materials and commodities conservation and rationing meant participation and sacrifices by all. Their efforts included scrap drives, taking factory jobs, goods donations and other similar projects to assist the troops on the front lines. Government-sponsored ads, radio shows, posters and pamphlet campaigns urged the American people to comply. With a sense of urgency, the campaigns appealed to America to contribute by whatever means they had, without complaint. These methods were a highly effective and one can imagine how and why by viewing the conservation and rationing posters displayed on this website.
