Using cellophane for food preservation
Wrapping Victory Garden produce in cellophane and freezing it at locker plants will provide fresh, flavorsome food to approximately a million American families this year. There are 4,600 locker plants, mainly in rural and suburban areas. The housewife, left, brings her peaches and corn, properly prepared and wrapped into the locker plant for freezing and storing. In many cases, the food is prepared for the customer by the locker plant staff.
