Food Rationing during World War 2. Before the Second World War started Britain imported about 55 million tons of food a year from other countries.

Food Rationing during World War 2

After war was declared in September 1939, the British government had to cut down on the amount of food it brought in from abroad as German submarines started attacking British supply ships. There was a worry that this would lead to shortages of food supplies in the shops so the British government decided to introduce a system of rationing. Rationing made sure that people got an equal amount of food every week. The government was worried that as food became scarcer, prices would rise and poorer people might not be able to afford to eat.

There was also a danger that some people might hoard food, leaving none for others.
