Sugar Sugar. 1945 Rationing Notice

Ration 1Ration 2Ration 3

Familiar with World War II rationing? Yes, I am, as in the term, the concept, as a part of history.

Curious? I was. The Federal Office of Price Administration rationed the purchase and quantities of items starting in December 1941 .

Succinct teaching tools from the Smithsonian www.smithsonianeducation.org/idealabs/wwii/ and the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill www.learnnc.org/lp/editions/ww2-rationing provide a starting point if you’re curious too.

Did you have sugar in your coffee today?
