Preparing for the Food Shortages

Every day it seems you hear more and more about food shortages. You’ve probably even seen the empty shelves at your local grocery store – and what is still available, has drastically risen in price. 

Along with all of that, recent reports of the destruction of a high number of food processing plants –  planes crashing into them, explosions, fires, etc. Across the U.S., poultry farms culled more than 22 million birds in an effort to contain an outbreak of Highly Pathogenic Avian Influenza.

Along with all of this, there are Biden’s food shortage warnings, and Klaus Schwab saying, “food systems…. will be deeply affected.” America’s farmland is majorly owned by Bill Gates and Chinese investors – with hundreds of thousands of acres between the two. U.S. dairy farms have closed at astronomical rates over the last several years. (This list could go on and on.)

With all of this knowledge, what should our response be? One would tend to think that these aren’t just coincidences.

But, here we are. We’ve been lulled into a place of dependency. We expect to be fed and cared for, in a sense.

We are conditioned to believe grocery store shelves will always be fully stocked, and restaurants will have the food that we want, available, when we arrive.

It’s almost as if we look to America’s food system as a parent, and when they “fail to provide”, we are at a loss for what to do.

If we are honest, most of us don’t know how to provide food (or clean water) for ourselves or our families.

The skills possessed by our ancestors, have gone by the wayside. For generations before us, hunting, small-scale agriculture, and preparing for times of need were routine aspects of daily life, yet for the most part, members of modern society have handed those responsibilities over to others – individuals or entities who have no vested interest in our welfare or prosperity.

The majority of us have never found ourselves in such a place. So, now what? Is it too late to start? The short answer, no. It’s never too late, as long as you have breath in your lungs. There is always hope – you can make the decision to start learning and doing, today.

Could the answer simply be, that we learn how to grow our own food, or learn how to hunt? (Though I think I’d rather die, than do the latter!)

Maybe we should start getting connected with local farmers, churches, and the people in our immediate communities. In doing that, we could possibly start to come up with ways to provide for ourselves, when the supply chains we are dependent upon fail us. For some, the answer might lie in moving out of urban areas, acquiring acreage, and learning to live off of the land.

In addition to these possible avenues, we need to be sure we are patronizing patriot-owned food companies, whenever possible.

With the way things have been going, the need for a parallel economy is growing – in every aspect of life.

Simply put, we all just have to do our part, and we can be the change we hope to see.

And last, but not least, one of the most important things is to have at least a 6-month emergency food supply, from somewhere such as My Patriot Supply.

As Americans, we find it hard to wrap our minds around being in such a situation as this, but it is not the time to give up. There is so much potential in each of us – we just have to start thinking outside of the box. God has given us everything we need, to provide for ourselves and our families. We just have to choose, to learn how to do things, we never thought we would need to know.
