Bottom center reads " Poster Design By David Singer Tea Lautrec Lithography, San Francisco"

This poster has a white border around a central gray and green image of an agricultural landscape. A white, outlined bubble in the bottom third of this image contains large, black text reading "Apr. 8 / Food Day" with very small text below reading "WRITE: Food Day, Washington, D.C. 20036" next to a black symbol of a circle inside a half circle. Black text at the top of the poster reads "Food for people - not for profit". Above the white bubble are two gray cans, one with an image of a farm in it and the other with a green plant and a small boy sitting on the base of the can. There is a pile of money and a human figure between the two cans.

Food Day was a 1975 national campaign by the the Center for Science in the Public Interest, based in Washington, D.C. They sought to promote a greater awareness of the politics of food and the impact of corporate control over the food system. [LMC]
