Got Food and Water ??

WATER and FOOD are critical to sustaining life.   Ask yourself these simple questions:


· What would happen if a disaster or emergency interrupted the food supply to your local grocery store for an extended period of time?


· Would you have enough food and water on hand to feed your family if no food was available for a week, a month, or possibly a year?


Any person who goes to the grocery store routinely sees that prices are rising and the food budget is taking a larger and larger chunk of the family budget.  Wouldn’t be great if you could prepare your family’s food supply to cover an emergency and hedge inflation by becoming more self reliant when it comes to food and water? 


This page has information to assist you with answering these questions and more.  The left side of the page includes items related to preparedness and on the right you will find self  reliance information. Enjoy!!!
