1929 was a big year!

It saw the end of the Roaring Twenties, the beginning of the Great Depression, and introduced us all to of one of America’s iconic brands – Aunt Nellie’s!

Named after a real University of Wisconsin home economist, Nellie Jones, the company first processed only sweet peas, adding more canned and jarred fruits and vegetables over the next few years. That same year, potluck meals became an important way for communities to help nourish and support each other as times got tough.

After all this time, potlucks continue to be a popular way for family, neighbors and church communities to connect and entertain around the table.
