The British War Relief Society (BWRS) was a US-based humanitarian umbrella organization dealing with the supply of non-military aid such as food, clothes, medical supplies and financial aid to people in Great Britain during the early years of the Second World War. The BWRS had many local affiliates; the Northern California chapter issued this charitable benefit cookery book in order to raise funds for the BWRS.
