Prepping: It's Not Just for TEOTWAWKI
I filled one of those $2 Styrofoam coolers you buy at Wal-Mart with meat from the freezer and grabbed a couple of 12-packs of canned vegetables from the shelf that I purchased at a commissary caseload sale. It's not much but it may save them a trip to the grocery store. Some of the #10 cans of freeze dried stuff may be next....
The point is that there are any number of emergencies that can happen besides a total meltdown: unemployment, illness, flu outbreak, blizzard or hurricane. Anything that disrupts our lives can make having a stockpile of food just one less thing to worry about. Having it on hand for TEOTWAWKI doesn't mean that a portion of it cannot be donated to someone who is dangerously close to exhausting their supplies due to a conventional crisis.
