CWTP | Modern Food, Moral Food

Event Description

Food took on urgent new importance in the early 20th century United States. It seemed increasingly clear to many that national strength depended on an abundant food supply and public health depended upon nutrition science. Meanwhile, World War I sparked the creation of the nation’s first foreign aid program, which infused food choices with morality. Food became recognizably modern in this era and understanding how that happened is key to understanding food today.
