Did you know that it is a commandment
from Heavenly Father
to be prepared?
(It's not just the Scout motto.) Who said so? The First Presidency in a "Message" to the Church https://lds.org/family/family-well-bein ... e?lang=eng
Through the 31st Honeyville Grains (In Stores only UT, AZ, So. CA) has their red and white wheat on sale for $6.00 for 25 lbs. Compare that to $11.45 at the "Home Storage Center"
and you will see what a GREAT price this is.http://honeyvillegrain.com/contact/Contact.html
(page down for store maps/locations)
This was announced on their newsletter, so call ahead to make sure they will honor it at your location.
Also I priced #50 of rice and popcorn at Sam's this week for around $17. Costco has a similar price on rice but doesn't carry the great tasting/popping bulk popcorn.
The LDS Church Dry Pack Cannery (now known as the "Home Storage Center") has beans for around $16 for 25 lbs.http://www.providentliving.org/pfw/mult ... 11_pdf.pdf
So $72 worth of grains and about $40 worth of beans will give you "bare bones" survival grains/beans for a year.
Put them in these containers (around 7-8) to have your years worth...http://www.industrialcontainer.com/item ... num='P062'
and store using the dry ice method...http://providentliving.org/pfw/multimed ... v4_pdf.pdf
and you have the very basics for possible survival that should store for 30+ years...preferably in a cool, dry place.
