Cuba will ration food and other products. It will ration beans, chicken, eggs, rice, soap and other things. There is an economic crisis in Cuba. There are shortages of food. This is because the USA put a trade embargo on Cuba. Another reason is a crisis in Venezuela means Cuba is getting less fuel.

Cuba imports about two-thirds of its food. It can now import less food. Many supermarket shelves are empty. People must stand in line to buy food. Rationing will stop people buying and keeping food. If people do this, there is less food for others. One shopper in the capital city Havana said life was "tough".
