  49. Remarks to Members of the Conference Called To Develop a Food Conservation Program  
March 1, 1946

I APPRECIATE very much your being here today. We are in a very serious condition, so far as world food consumption is concerned. I sincerely believe that with your advice and your help we will be able to work this program out, so that the people who are now on the verge of starvation may live through the next year.

It is the most important meeting I think we have held in the White House since I have been the President.

I particularly want to thank Mr. Hoover, and the Secretary of Agriculture and the Secretary of Commerce, and each one of you individually, for coming here today to help on this program.
Thank you very much.

NOTE: The President spoke in the Conference Room in the East Wing of the White House at 3:15 p.m. The remarks of President Hoover, Secretary Anderson, and Secretary Wallace were also released.

For a telegram inviting leading citizens to attend the conference, see Item 45.
