These two short pieces, presented by the United States Department of Agriculture, highlight department projects during the administration of President Lyndon Baines Johnson. Launched in 1946, the National School Lunch Program provides schoolchildren with low-cost or free nutritious meals during school hours. The Agricultural Conservation Program, started in 1964 by the Agricultural Stabilization and Conservation Service, on the other hand, supports Appalachian farmers in improving existing pastures.
The films created by The White House Naval Photographic Unit documented the life of the President and first family in both an official and unofficial capacity. During the early years of the Johnson administration the films primarily documented ceremonial events, but in June 1966 monthly reports concerning the President began being produced. The monthly reports provide insight into a range of the President's activities by documenting and presenting a clear portrayal of what the President did in that month. The monthly reports also captured happenings in the life of the first family.
