Back to food card


The issue of returning food ration cards has been actively discussed in Russia since the beginning of the pandemic: “The return of food ration cards used during the last collapse of the USSR is being discussed at the expert level. According to the Cabinet of Ministers, the government is not discussing the introduction of a food rationing system to support poor Russians.
The Public Chamber of the Russian Federation and retailers offered targeted food assistance to low-income families. Russian food producers and suppliers urged the country's leadership to return to the Ministry of Industry and Trade's project on food cards for low-income citizens.
