Kansas Museum of History - Special exhibit - What's Cooking, Uncle Sam?

Food. We love it, fear it, and obsess about it.

We demand that our Government ensure that it is safe, cheap, and abundant. In response, Government has been a factor in the production, regulation, research, innovation, and economics of our food supply. It has also attempted, with varying success, to change the eating habits of Americans.

From the farm to the dinner table, explore the records of the National Archives that trace the Government’s effect on what Americans eat.

January 28 - May 1, 2016, at the Kansas Museum of History.

This exhibition was created by the National Archives and Records Administration, Washington, D.C., with support from the Foundation for the National Archives. The national tour of What’s Cooking, Uncle Sam? is made possible by Mars, Incorporated.
