During the Great Depression, people had to resort to eating unusual foods due to poverty and scarcity.

One of the most popular meals during this time was called "Hoover Stew," which consisted of vegetables, spices, and water.

Some people resorted to eating wild animals, such as squirrels and rabbits, as a source of protein.

Another unusual food that people ate during this time was pickled pigs' feet, which were relatively cheap and could be found in most grocery stores.

People also ate organ meats, such as liver and kidney, because they were inexpensive and provided essential nutrients.

 Some people foraged for dandelions, which they used to make salads, soups, and even wine.

Many families started growing their own vegetables to save money and ensure a steady supply of food.

Some people made mock apple pie by using crackers instead of apples, as apples were expensive and hard to come by.

 "Depression Cake," a cake made without eggs or butter, became popular as a way to save money on ingredients.

Finally, people also ate bread crusts and stale bread, as they couldn't afford to waste any food.
