America Eats!

Hosted by


Pat Willard retraces the Works Progress Administration's controversial American food heritage project in America Eats!: On the Road with the WPA - the Fish Fries, Box Supper Socials, and Chitlin Feasts That Define Real American Food.  Part of President Franklin Roosevelt's New Deal plan, the WPA was created in 1935 and employed millions of people during the Great Depression. The unpublished project "America Eats" is archived in the Library of Congress.
