This is a very well designed image using the visual appeal of the colorful and abundant produce to promote conservation on the part of the people on the home front. The message is bold and clear - Eat Less so that we can Send More to Europe or they will Starve. During the period of World War I there was an ongoing famine in many parts of Europe as a result of the protracted fighting and depleted labor force to serve the farms. In addition, soldiers were often malnourished as well. This graphic explicitly gets its message across by showing the domestic abundance of produce and declaring that we should all eat less to send the excess to Europe. The artist is A. Hendee , unfortunately little is known about him.
