This is something we all should be doing and implementing to our daily lives! A food crisis can happen due to a variety of reasons such as natural disasters, pandemics, economic downturns, and supply chain disruptions. To plan for a food crisis, it is important to take a multi-faceted approach that includes both short-term and long-term measures.
Build a food reserve: Keep a stock of non-perishable food items, such as canned goods and dried foods, that can sustain you and your family for at least a few weeks.
Establish local connections: Build relationships with local farmers, food producers, and suppliers. They may be able to provide food in case of a crisis.
Learn to grow your own food: Consider starting a garden or learning about urban farming so that you can grow your own food in case of a crisis.
Store water: Store clean drinking water in case of a disruption in water supply.
Develop a plan: Create a plan that includes steps for obtaining food and water in case of a crisis, and share it with your family and friends.
Be prepared to improvise: Be flexible and prepared to adapt to different circumstances, and be willing to use alternatives such as food banks and community kitchens in case of a crisis.
