Weird Place To Find Survival Food In A Disaster
Weird Place To Find Survival Food
In A Disaster
A friend of mine saw it with his own eyes when he was trapped in NYC by the storm.
In fact, in our continuing research on “survival food”, I wanted to share with you a true story of a valuable survival lesson my friend stumbled upon during Hurrican Sandy…
You see, my buddy, Adam, was traveling to NYC right before the hurricane hit and thought he could get out of the city before the Hurricane hit.
Unfortunately all flights were cancelled earlier than expected and Adam was stranded.
His first thought was of stocking up on food and water for the next 72 hours to 1 week.
But when he went down to the local grocery store, the shelves were just about picked clean (he got the last few gallons of water actually).
Faced with not enough food, he decided to check the local phone book for an alternative.
What he found, to me, is an amazing survival secret…
The Hidden Treasure Of Groceries
In Your Neighborhood
You see, while the local “big” grocery was ravaged by locals who don’t take disaster food storage as serious as you and I… the local ethnic stores were stocked full of food!
Adam found a treasure trove of food at a small, local Mediteranean grocery and stocked up on tons supplies for the duration of the disaster.
Here’s what to take away from this…
- If you’re traveling, always carry a small amount of “travel food” (eg. nuts, energy bars) with you so you’re not as desperate when disaster strikes.
- To stock up when an actual crisis hits, DON’T “follow the herd” down to the local big grocery. That’s where tensions run highest and violence can break out. Instead, look in the phone book for a local ethnic store that most people don’t even know about.
- Know which items to stock up on that will sustain you and your family the longest and keep you from picking through dumpsters for food.
Yes, even when you’re traveling, you need to put together a tactical “get home bag” in case a disaster strikes. You never know when it will hit and a true survivor and protector is NEVER unprepared, right?
As another example, Asian stores are plentiful and overlooked. Plus they have a large amount of dried food in them because most of it is shipped from their home country.
You want foods that you can pack away in your “bug-out bag” and will keep without refrigeration.
Don’t Make This #1 Mistake When
A Disaster Is Headed Your Way…
Never take chances when it comes to your protecting yourself and those you love in a disaster.
Most people just ignore the disaster warnings and think it will blow over and all will be back to normal in a day or two.
They’re too often wrong…. and families suffer loss as a result!
You and I aren’t like them.
You know that it’s what you do NOW that prepares you for any crisis.
Build your personal “bug-out bag” (like this) that you can store away now and you’ll take off a lot of stress knowing that your supplies are taken care of, even if you have to leave home.
In our guide, we also include ideas of the best survival foods for your bug-out bag.
