A Fascinating Look at
Food During the Great Depression
From the author of the acclaimed
97 Orchard and her husband, a culinary historian, an in-depth
exploration of the greatest food crisis the nation has ever faced—the Great
Depression—and how it transformed America's culinary culture.
decade-long Great Depression, a period of shifts in the country's political and
social landscape, forever changed the way America eats. Before 1929, America's
relationship with food was defined by abundance. But the collapse of the
economy, in both urban and rural America, left a quarter of all Americans out of
work and undernourished—shattering long-held assumptions about the limitlessness
of the national larder.
A Square Meal examines the impact of
economic contraction and environmental disaster on how Americans ate then—and
the lessons and insights those experiences may hold for us today.
