Activity 3

Rationing: Find out what rationing was and what food was and wasn’t available. Make a poster to show what sorts of food were in short supply or how much you were allowed of each food.


Thinking activity: Think about what happened during the Corona Virus lockdown with food and supplies. Compare this to what happened in the War. What was similar and what was different? Is there any food your family has found hard to find? Discuss with someone in your family.


Practical activity: Find a recipe for some food made in WW2. Have a go at making the recipe. Here are some ideas for you to look up the recipe for. Feel free to research your own though.
