Why store a year's worth of food?
The top answer is famine. With famine comes malnutrition,
epidemics and disease, as well a gradual lack of medical
services. All contribute to significant mortality! Famine is among
the top reasons to stockpile food and yet it is rarely mentioned
among preppers.

What are the causes of famine?

  • Poor growing conditions. Crop failure could result from
    drought and dust storms, freezing conditions, flooding, crop
    blight (infection by a pathogenic organism).

  • Political reasons. Political culling where food surplus never
    reaches those who need it; war where resources of
    manpower are spent towards the war effort bringing on

  • Natural or man-made catastrophes (e.g. a solar flare or
    EMP). As result of man's dependency on power to farm the
    food supply and inability to access it (as with an
    ElectroMagnetic Pulse (EMP).
