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!

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