The Civilian Conservation Corps was a voluntary government work relief program that offered nearly 3 million unemployed, unmarried men the job of restoring and conserving America's public lands, forests and parks. The wages weren't the only draw--the program also threw in three square meals a day served in the camp mess hall. The Civilian Conservation Corps Cookbook features the recipes that sustained not only the CCC during the Great Depression but also our grandparents and great-grandparents. Budget friendly, with ingredients that can easily be found--if not in your very own pantry then at your local grocer--these recipes reflect the "make do" attitude of Depression-era home cooks.
