Abstract. The article discusses the coronavirus pandemic’s influence on nutrition among Russians in the frameworks of the strict antiviral limitations and the forms of food products acquisition during long stays at home when visits to stores were limited, as well as during the self-isolation period when it was allowed to visit stores and restaurants. It seems important to analyze the consequences of the increase of the Russians’ spendings on the ration, to review what means were used for disease prevention and boosting immunity. Because the pandemic hit the restaurant industry, I found it important to study the work of restaurants during the temporary lockdown and after the lift of limitations. The main sources for the article are mass media such as Russian TV channels and the Internet, which were the first to provide updates on the new developments and threats caused by the coronavirus pandemic from December 2019 to July 2020.
