Building an “Emergency Fund” of Food

4 12 2008

Check out this good guest post on food storage on Money Saving Mom. One of the comments was interesting:

I do this too and find it helpful. We just lost over one month of pay because my spouse’s company just folded and couldn’t pay their employees – his entire monthly paycheque and $500 worth of expenses just gone. I’m so glad that I have been prepared both with the emergency fund and wise grocery shopping. Times are tough but we’ll get by.

Then go to Safely Gathered In and check out some of the informative posts there. The current one is on canning food in #10 cans, which is cool though I have no idea how expensive the equipment is. Also I don’t know what you could put in #10 cans, but what if your church could have a big lasagna (or whatever kind of food) canning party, where everyone brings a dish and you could put away canned meals for a kind of food bank at the church?
