Stop Starvation in Rome

By: Laura Bundus

hunger
Hunger
  • Starvation has always been a

problem around the world

  • Roman starvation

However started during the

downfall of the empire.

  • Because people could no

longer afford to pay taxes the government couldn’t provide much either

rome tried to provide
Rome tried to provide
  • The roman government did have

welfare but too many people were

on it and the government couldn’t

support them

  • The welfare program was called

the annona, people were issued

tokens called tali or tesserae

  • government baked bread was given out
what didn t work
What didn’t work
  • The Roman Empire was so big it was hard to transport the food and good to certain places, which is why the people did not

get enough food.

  • There were no available jobs or

Medicare available at the time

  • Slave labor was cheap so that lead

to unemployment

solutions they tried
Solutions they tried
  • Candles and sticks of animal fat were eaten in times of starvation
  • People who grew their

own food were in a little

better shape all though most

of the food was taken by tax

collectors

  • Julius Caesar cut welfare down during his rule, during that time Rome thrived. After his rule however it went back up and slowly the fall of the empire started
what my solution is
What my solution is
  • My idea is to provide more government paid jobs. This will help the people so they have more money and the self runed businesses wont be paying out of there salary to pay their workers which means more money for taxes too.
  • With more jobs provided

you get more money, and more

employers

welfare
welfare
  • I still think there should be a welfare system the people still in need don’t need to be neglected
  • But I think the food stamps

should have to be worked for,

like to get your monthly food

stamps you have to do community service

  • This saves the government money instead of paying people to do small jobs
