My father-in-law, who by the way is a really good guy, has made similar comments although he is aware that food isn't made in grocery stores. My wife and I are have stores of food, non perishable food and supplies stored away just in case of emergencies. I think we've got a few months of water, food and other supplies. My wife suggested that he do the same but his reply was "Why? Wont I be able to go to the market?" We had to explain to him the reality of shortages if natural or man made emergencies cause local, regional or wide spread panic. We have a garden and teach our kids about growing their own food, making bread and providing for yourself.
