What were Ration Coupons and why did people have them?
Ration coupons are paper documents indicating the amount of a certain item that the coupon holder is entitled to. Ordinarily, these documents are provided to the general population in times of shortage. In WWII for example, food ration coupons were given to U.S. citizens because of the immense food shortages brought about by the lack of food production in the United States at the time.

How did they ration food in World War 2?
They had ration books which had coupons in. Every time they wanted to buy something they had to had their book to the shop keeper and they would cross of the coupons which they were using. After they had finished their book they had to go to a person and they would check if they had finished up all of the tokens and if they had then they would give them another book. After the war had ended rationing still had to happen because it took them a little while before they had got all the food back. I hope that answers your Question :D .

What was a ration book during world war 2?
There was a massive food shortage in the UK during World War II and for a few years after the war. To ensure that everyone had the minimum food required to survive, ration books with coupons inside were issued to every citizen. When people went to the shops to buy food, they had to pay for the food as usual, but the shopkeeper had to remove the right number of coupons from the ration book. If food hadn't been rationed, rich people would have been able to buy as much as they wanted and poor people would have starved. In the UK, the last commodities didn't come off ration until 1954, 9 years after the war had ended.
