Where is all the food in your neighborhood?
In this chapter, Joel says: Nobody goes hungry because of the lack of food; they go hungry due to a lack of distribution.
What if your thought on this? Do you agree or disagree?
Joel talks about the local farmer’s markets and canning your own food. He says that if a person went to a market stand and asked for 3 bushels of green bean for canning the next week, that it would through everything into a tizzy. Is your market like this?
I remember one summer, going to our Staunton market and wanting to buy yellow squash for canning. I didn’t get mine in the ground in time that year and I figured it would be in plenty. Can you believe that I had to buy from 4 different vendors and still didn’t get enough? I asked them if they had more at their farms. Nope. Just what was there. I left disappointed, but put up what I could.
Eat Seasonally! Do you? What does this entail?
If you were to lose power for an indefinite period of time, how long would your food supply last? What could you do to change this?
