What does it mean to ration something? Why was this so important during WWII? Discover how WWII encouraged people to try new foods, grow their own crops, and learn new skills. Then, bake a WWII-era ration recipe with your family! To explore rationing further, join us in a live virtual workshop to look closely at items from WWII, take a virtual tour of our new exhibition Fighting on the Homefront: Propaganda Posters in WWII from the Detroit Historical Society, and create your own propaganda poster!
