"Finest ration-squares on Lothal."
―Jai Kell sarcastically praises the academy's ration-squares[src]

Ration-squares were a type of food served to the cadets of the Academy for Young Imperials on the planet Lothal during the reign of the Galactic Empire.[1] Around five years before the Battle of Yavin,[2] the human Cadet Jai Kell complained to his roommates at the academy that he longed for maize rolls and Westhills butter instead of another meal of ration-squares.[1]

Behind the scenesEdit

Ration-squares were first mentioned in the young readers' novel Servants of the Empire: Rebel in the Ranks, which was written by Jason Fry and released in 2015.
