More rationing |
The Richmond Herald published notices on the advised rations for children:
|Under 10 years||3lb||1 1/2lb||1/2lb|
|13-18 years||5lb||2 1/2lb||1/2lb|
The local papers were filled with articles on food prices, rationing, and proposals for a communal kitchen. By May 1917, food prices were almost twice that of July 1914.
