Anyone who is alive today can see that there are problems in this world. Earthquakes, tsunamis, flooding, and lots of other weird weather phenomenon is causing havoc not only with people’s lives, but with crops throughout the world.
It is becoming common to hear about shortages of food due to crop failures and the increased prices that go with it. Not long ago, my wife and I decided to do something about it. We planted a garden and started growing our own crops. While it is small, it will provide us with some of the basics like lettuce, tomatoes, cucumbers, and other basics. Fortunately for us, our yard allows us this opportunity and we have other areas in our backyard that can be turned into a garden for other crops.
However, not all people can do this. Even though we have a garden, we are not relying solely on that for a food source because the weather is always beyond our control. To that end, we have begun stocking up on food basics. Every time we go to the grocery store, we buy certain things in bulk. We also buy more water bottles as well.
We have turned one of our closets into a large pantry and storing food and basic supplies that will come in handy when we begin to see shortages on store shelves. Is this another “Y2K” scare? Not at all, since the Y2K was a manufactured situation involving how computers might or might not act when 12 midnight occurred going from December 31, 1999 to January 1, 2,000. The current situation the world is facing is due to actual problems in the world; problems that are affecting people on a daily basis. My wife and I see this occurring in the world and we simply do not want to be caught unprepared.
It was to this end that we learned of Shelf Reliance and we are extremely glad we did. The products that Shelf Reliance produces are produced under rigid quality control standards and things like food allergies are deeply considered during production. The goal is to help people stock up on reasonably priced food that is sent to them packaged in such a way that it takes up less room and lasts a good deal longer. In essence, buying Shelf Reliance products is buying in bulk because the food needs to be reconstituted with water. Don’t let the sound of that scare you away though because the food tastes excellent. If you are hesitant about it, do what my wife and I did at first. We bought a sample can of chicken to see what it would be like. We were pleasantly surprised!
There are things in this world that are occurring now that are creating a terribly fragile food situation. Do you have a storehouse of food that will get you through the rough times ahead? If not, you should really start making plans and Shelf Reliance products can help get you there.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me. I look forward to hearing from you.
