One of the most important things families can do in the present emergency is to keep physically fit. Nutrition is a fundamental factor in physical fitness. Those families who are making a conscientious effort to improve their food habits are lining up for the nation's defense and ultimate victory.

If you are enrolled in the Victory Home and Garden program you are helping to insure yourself and others of an adequate supply of home produced foods through careful planning of production and preservation.

This March 1942 publication discusses the concern about preserving enough food for good health during times of war. It covers the yearly plan for home production and preservation of food; the amount of vegetable variety seeds needed to produce a garden; garden insect pest control; common diseases of vegetables and their control; and fruits and vegetables for the Nebraska home and garden.
