Most recently the collapse in Venezuela has taught us that starvation is never far enough away.
There are tons of article on the net about various elements of a collapse. When I watch the people of the fallen nation of Venezuela attacking food trucks and rioting over chickens its a chilling reminder that food is everything.
There is nothing that pushes people the way starvation does. This makes articles like these precious to your survival efforts.
How much food do you need and what foods should you have access to.
The big thing to understand is the calories needed. You should have 2000 calories per person per day, in your family. You have to have 2000 calories for everyone. If little Jacob is only 3, you need to store 2000 calories. He won’t always be 3.
Be sure you have enough food for a month, at least. Food storage is a massive part of preparedness. Dont forget extra food means you can help people.
Homesteading or urban homesteading is the silent partner when it comes to prepping and survival. Keeping chickens and goats are much easier than you think. This stuff can make a huge difference in a collapse but also in your life in general.
It’s very rewarding.
At the end of the day, you should also know a few people who produce food on the Macro. Farmers will produce the most food and knowing a few will give you a source that you can go to in times of need. Being a farmhand in the collapse is a great way to get food for your family.
Food is all. Operate from a position of power by having access to food that is sustainable, food that is dry and safely stored and it might be worth getting to know a few farmers.
