Emergency Food Reserves

Greeting Everyone,

How important is it to have emergency food reserves in your household?

As I sit in my office writing, the rain is reviving life outside. We have been in a drought for two months and everything is dead. My cows have no food! I've been feeding them range cubes and hay. On the other hand, my goats are managing quite well in the drought.

So, I'm telling you this actual happenings for a purpose. I'm always worried about having enough feed to make it through the Winter months.

Then, I began wondering about all the families in America.

Just how many of us have enough food to last at a minium of one month?

It's scary to think what that survey would look like.
