    Fiorello La Guardia asks chefs how they can save food so it can be sent to poorer countries.

  • Description

    Unused / unissued footage - dates and locations may be unclear / unknown.

    Washington DC, United States of America.

    Various shots of Mr Fiorello La Guardia, former Mayor of New York and Director General of UNRRA (United Nations Relief and Rehabilitation Administration), in the kitchen of the Hotel Statler.

    Sound is extremely poor, but we can just make out La Guardia asking chefs and a dietician how they are saving bread, flour, oil and sugar, so that more supplies can be sent to countries that need them most. Quite funny, with La Guardia telling people to "Sshhh!" and licking his finger to have a taste of a pie, making everyone laugh. Dietician explains how to make salad dressing without oil.

    Notes on file.
