Food Storage - Down to Earth and Practical

 There are many reasons to use food storage not just a major catastrophe. Food storage is a great way to save money (buying in bulk at sale prices, and using when prices are high), helping to weather economic storms (job loss or pay cuts), eating healthy (whole grains and less processed foods) and many more. 

Here are some great quotes from an article in Tuesday's Deseret News: 

"According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, the average time someone may spend out of work these days is 40.9 weeks. With this reality facing many Americans, food storage like the Gabrielsons' have can be an economic lifesaver."

Teresa Hunsaker, Utah State University Extension agent,
"I'm so glad that there are families who planned," Hunsaker said. "I work with families in my finance counseling — and I know when they have had food storage it has made all the difference in being able to keep the roof overhead and divert the money they would have spent on food to a more needed spot."
