Khanipova I.I., Krivonozhkina E.G.
Nutrition is a natural human need. The lack or absence of products affects all vital functions of the body, primarily maintaining health, working capacity, and childbearing. One of the first tasks of the state at all times is the task to provide the population with essential goods, and, above all, with foodstuff. However, in difficult periods for the state, such as on the eve and during the Great Patriotic War (1941–1945), providing the civilian population with food constituted a difficult task for our state. In the presented article, the authors has made an attempt to study the process of providing the urban and rural population of the rear region – the Republic of Tatarstan – with food on the eve and during the Great Patriotic War and fill in the gaps in this problem by the means of analyzing published and unpublished sources.
