What’s Cooking, Uncle Sam? The Government’s Effect on The American Diet
September 27, 2014 - January 2, 2015
Food. We love it, fear it, and obsess about it.
We demand that our Government ensure that it is safe, cheap, and abundant. In response, Government has been a factor in the production, regulation, research, innovation, and economics of our food supply. It has also attempted, with varying success, to change the eating habits of Americans.
From the farm to the dinner table, explore the records of the National Archives that trace the Government’s effect on what Americans eat.
