Comment: Get the people around you involved.

(See in situ)

Get the people around you involved.

Maybe start by renting a canning machine from a local LDS Homestore along with some bulk dry foods and have neighbors over for a canning party. If your neighbors have not been thinking along these lines this is a great way to introduce them and get them thinking. Once you get them considering, add the next idea. Make yourself a resource in your community. Nice thing is, this can have an impact no matter where you live.

If the people around you have their own stores they will not be coming for yours. Don't cherry pick, get as many involved as you can. If you can become a resource in your community, your community may even want to protect that resource. Frankly, when the SHTF I want as many people looking out for my kids as possible.
