FOOD EDUCATION SIR,—Thc Food Education Society for nearly fifty years

has been teaching the general public what foods are best for health, but such teach- ing today is often nullified because many of the best foods have lost their gustatory appeal and often much of their nutritional value through excessive processing (in some cases processing is of course inevitable).

My Committee therefore is appealing to those who are truly interested in the provision of pure appetising food of a high nutritional value to join our Society. What the Society needs is moral and financial support. Anyone who shares our enthusiasm for the stated aims of the Society is requested to get in touch with The Food Education Society at 29 Gordon Square, London, WC1, to whom also all donations should be sent.—Yours faithfully, FRANKLIN BICKNELL Chairman, Food Education Society
