11.3 Recipient division

Standard-sized, small groups of recipients are called into a distribution area and presented with the ration, packaged in its original bags and tins, equivalent to the ration scale times the number of recipients in the group. The group then divides the commodities among themselves under the guidance and observation of a monitor. After division, the recipients leave the distribution area.

This method works well when using a standard household ration and has the advantage of being fast, requiring little infrastructure, and involving recipients to a greater degree.
