Food will win the war : you came here seeking freedom, you must now help to preserve it : wheat is needed for the Allies, waste nothing.

Description:

Color poster of people standing on a boat or shoreline near the sea. They appear to be European immigrants. In the foreground, a man appears to be pleading with a woman holding a basket of food. In the background can be seen part of a large ship, the Statue of Liberty, and a rainbow stretching across the New York skyline. A man waves his cap in that direction.
