Community food preservation-families getting together in a neighborly way to can, brine, preserve or store an oversupply for a coming need-is as old as America and as new as all-out defense.

In normal, peaceful years, it is one of this country’s thrifty means of securing an all-the-year supply of good food. It has been proved a good way of tiding over droughts and depressions and meeting such food emergencies as are caused by floods and hurricanes. Now comes a new chapter in the food preservation story, the rallying of all Americans to conserve the Nation-building food supply as a vital part of our national defense.
