    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.

    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.

    I have friends who get government food, we have a lot of native Americans here and I get a lot of their surplus.

    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 bet if you asked a lot of people in New York and New Jersey they wouldn't sneer.
    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.

    After reading the thread in our DUmmie forum about the 6 cans of tuna, I started looking a little further into our emergency supplies. If we were hit with a disaster, we don't have nearly enough. Thanks for the links, going to check into getting more food. We have a generator, but it obviously won't do any good if we run out of gas. SR had an electrician install an electrical control/switch panel that routes the power from the portable generator to different areas of the house. It's not enough to keep on the AC, but will do some lights and overhead fans, in addition to the refrigerator. If that keeps going, we'd have enough food from the freezer to last us.

    We have a gas grill and two propane tanks, so should be able to cook outside. But in terms of canned goods, we're clearly deficient.

    SR had purchased those MRE's, but think we left them in a closet underneath the stairs in the basement when we moved. We sold the house in only 4 days and had to get out quickly, so I'm afraid too many things were left.

    Ok you got me to looking. I've had these save for some time.

    As far as prices go, I'm not really not the one to ask. Some are going to be better deals than others, but I guess people will have to compare.

    We have dried potatoes from raineydayfoods and they are real good, one thing I'll mention when buying dried hash browns, make sure you get them in #10 can, the ends of the dried hash browns will poke holes in the Mylar bags. Dried hash browns are as good as frozen or even fresh, better I think, we eat them on a weekly basis.
    potato dices are good but they rehydrate slowly, slices are better.
