Supporting the war one meal at a time, 1917

War Time Recipes


Wisconsin citizens pioneered many food conservation programs during the war, including the introduction of meatless and wheatless days. Wheat, beef, pork, dairy products, and sugar were rationed in order to provide highly nutritive food to the military fighting overseas. The Women Students' War Work Council, together with the University of Wisconsin's Home Economics Department, produced this booklet of recipes using alternative ingredients to show how everyone could do their part to support the troops.
