What's Cooking, Uncle Sam?

The Government's Effect on the American Diet

What’s Cooking, Uncle Sam? The Government’s Effect on the American Diet is an exhibition of records from the holdings of the National Archives that trace the ways that food has occupied the hearts and minds of Americans and their government.
