Let us pretend that for one reason or another, we are taking refuge in our home, with little chance of getting to a supermarket anytime soon. Perhaps the power is out, or the streets are icy, or a sick family member needs attention. Or something worse has happened and you are in the midst of a major disruptive event.
Whatever the reason, when we shelter in place, we still need to eat.
In cases like this, your prepper’s pantry can come to the rescue with enough food to keep you well-fed and happy for awhile to come. If you are lucky enough to have a bounteous garden, even better. Who needs the supermarket?
