Description

On November 29, 1942 coffee joined the list of rationed items in the United States. While coffee production itself was not affected by the war, the distribution suffered as a result of the prioritization of the military's shipping needs. Demands for coffee, from both the military and civilians, increased - as did the supply - but its availability decreased, forcing it to join the ration list. However, it would only remain on the ration list until July 1943.
