Launch Event for WWII Rationing Challenge

St Paul’s, Hills Rd, 
Cambridge, CB2 1JPWomen's Land Army

This evening of displays, talks and short films launches our WWII Food Rationing Challenge. 2015 is the 70 year anniversary marking the end of WWII. It is an opportunity to remember some of the hardships that people endured in their daily lives during and after the wartime years.

The challenge explores the common ground between a diet from the forties/fifties and eating sustainably today. Participants will be expected to stick to rations and can join in for a week or month, starting anytime during June 2015.

As well as individuals, we’d love groups of friends, family, colleagues and interest groups to try it together as a team. Each person will have their own ration book which they can pick up on the night (if you can’t make the launch you can request one by emailing: The ration book will guide you through the challenge and further resources will be available online and via Facebook.

A local food historian and author will be our rationing expert on the evening and Food Cycle will be cooking up some delicious snacks made from food that might otherwise have been wasted.

No booking required, free event.
