I don't know how many or who stores back an extra food supply but I stumbled onto the Mormon store while looking for canned flour, there is absolutely no one that can approach their price on canned long life staples like flour, whole wheat flour, rice, oatmeal dried pinto beans all packaged for long life in # 10 cans sold in cases of 6 for 28.00 -35.00 per case depending on product, their shipping is free and you need not be a church member you just sign up as a store member or use guest checkout.
For peanut butter, Tuna and many other canned products I use Amazon, sign up for Amazon prime and you will save a bundle if you stick with Amazon prime Items.The difference between pigs and people is that when they tell you you're cured it isn't a good thing.

Most of our stock is WIC supplied. They have us by a jar of peanut butter every two weeks, we also get various other foods that just end up piling up because we don't eat them as fast as they provide them.In most sports, cold-cocking an opposing player repeatedly in the face with a series of gigantic Slovakian uppercuts would get you a multi-game suspension without pay.
In hockey, it means you have to sit in the penalty box for five minutes.

We went with a prepackaged supply house a year or so back. We keep an unopened container of 56 meals in the hall closet. Cost about $100. Came in a big plastic container.
My sister sneered mockingly, when I told her what I had done, but caught herself and tried to hide the sneer. Nice try, Sis. But I saw it.
We keep it for ice storms, tornadoes and the like where we can't get out and Kroger is cleaned out anyway.

I have kept an emergency supply of food since I left home many years ago, at minimum 6 months. it has helped me many a time when times were hard and there were surprise layoffs, preparedness is nothing to mock, it is responsibility.

That's a great site Rock. Mormon site is one of the better places to buys stuff and get ideas. I don't have time to do it tonight, but I'll try to find some other links I have saved this kind of stuff.
I just keep a bunch a couple months supply of MREs I collected from the military over the years.Gun Control: The theory that a woman found dead in an alley, raped and strangled with her panty hose, is somehow morally superior to a woman explaining to police how her attacker got that fatal bullet wound - Unknown

I only keep rice, eggs, frozen vegetables, some tomatoes, popping corn, and some frozen fish in my house, but Mom and I could get by for a month or two from the stuff she has on hand. It wouldn't be a great month, but I'll bet that cake batter and creamed corn fritters isn't half bad.
