Life during wartime

(article, Culinate staff)

Britain's Cabinet Office has released a report with a grim outlook on the possibility of feeding the planet affordably. Declaring that "the postwar era of cheap food has ended," Britons are being urged to stop wasting food and start being more thrifty with groceries and gardens — in other words, to live the way they did during World War II and the food-rationed years that followed. This is in addition to various recent efforts to crack down on British citizens who are careless with their trash. Waste not, want not — maybe.
