CUB01.0005.xxf1s

(MODEL RELEASED) Cuban families receive ration cards that in theory let them obtain all their food staples at astonishingly low, state-subsidized prices. In practice, the cards don't quite cover everything, so Cubans must venture into the vastly more expensive agromercados, open markets that sell products from the few government-sanctioned private farms and surpluses from cooperative farms that have fulfilled their state quotas. Hungry Planet: What the World Eats (p. 102).
