New Book Highlights University Food Conservation Efforts During WWI

| Leave a comment

Extension employees interested in learning more about the University of Minnesota's role in food conservation during WWI are invited to attend the celebration of Rae Katherine Eighmey's new book, "Food Will Win the War: Minnesota Crops, Cooks and Conservation during WWI," published by Minnesota Historical Society Press.  The event will be held on April 19 beginning at 4 p.m. at the University Book Store, Coffman Union. The event is free and open to the public.

In her book, Eighmey, a St. Paul resident and food historian, writes about the accomplishments of the University, Extension and the state's farmers and citizens to help the food-starved, war-torn American Allies eat another day and fight another battle.

For additional information about Extension's role in food conservation, watch the Extension Centennial video, "Access to Healthy Foods," featuring Eighmey as commentator.
