Summary/Abstract: In the years of WWI the belligerent states faced the problem of supplying the troops in the rear. The paper deals both with the main ways in which the Entente troops on the Mac-edonian front provide themselves with food and the structure of the Entente provision for the rear. The Entente domination in the Mediterranean region and the organization of the provision, especially its decentralization, helped for the regular supplies of food for the army as well as for its good quality. This situation changed after the break-through at Dobro Pole in September 1918, when the commissariat supply for the troops deteriorated. However, within a few months the provision of food improved again as the resources of the occupied countries were used.
