Featured Activity

During World War I, the United States made a great effort to conserve food and other vital materials to help supply the troops and our allies abroad. People were encouraged to follow "Meatless Mondays" and "Wheatless Wednesdays" in an effort to both unite the general public behind the war effort and furnish these essential resources to the allied nations.
