The “We’ll have lots to eat this winter, won’t we mother?” poster was designed by Al Parker in 1943, this was at the height of the war effort. It was designed with intention of encouraging home gardens and home canning. During this period there were food shortages throughout the United States due to the demands on factories by the soldiers overseas. By encouraging families to grow and maintain their own food sources pressure was being taken off the factories.
The picture depicts a smiling and healthy looking mother and daughter as they put food into jars. In the foreground we can see them at work as they put food into jars. In the background we can see stores of food building up for the long winter ahead.
