Get Ready To Feed The World

Be Prepared: My old Scout Motto.

Anyone who eats should know by now that the price of food is going up, even the basics like beans, rice, cornmeal and flour are demanding more from the wallet with every visit to the market. Stock up on as much wheat, beans and rice as you can get your hands on, you can't have too much of these basic survival foods. Even if you never use it for its intended purpose, it can be rotated into your everyday meals, letting you eat for last years prices.

A good plan for stockpiling survival food consists primarily of economical basic food items: wheat, sugar and or honey, tomato paste, powdered milk, canned fish or Spam, beef or chicken bullion, and salt. From these few basic ingredients, a wide variety of foods can be prepared. The advantages of this plan is that these food items are relatively inexpensive, readily available, storage is simple and the wheat, sugar and salt will store indefinitely under proper conditions.

I have a feeling we will end up feeding hundreds, if not thousands!
Do you have any good ideas?

Don't be too timid and squeamish about your actions. All life is an experiment. — Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803-1882)

Thanks Walt! Your forward thinking is certainly much needed during such bad times. What we need is pragmatism and a systematic approach to savings to reduce wastage and to maximize utility.

We have to tighten our belts now because times are expected to worsen....

Take care and watch and pray...

Blessings to you and yours..

I live in a nation of blind sheep. Here in New Babylon, the handwriting has long been on the wall, yet most still refuse to see. Rest assured God is at work in these dreadful times, and for people like us it is our chance to show Him just what kind of souls that we are made of, in this unprecedented historical event. Dire warnings have been a steady diet for years now, the current financial crisis is not abating but growing deeper as the days go by. You must realize that if our American economy were to completely collapse, the mighty US war machine would quickly starve to death. Such a collapse will bring about revolutions, it would totally change the power structure in our world and it would probably happen overnight.

Dear Walt,

I hear what you are saying and believe that it will come true although I wish it didn't because of the many lives that will be hurt.

Take care...

Peace be unto you and yours.
