When the going gets tough, the tough sit back and enjoy their food storage. That’s right. Nowadays, being prepared is no longer the realm of survivalist types.

More and more, people are concerned about what will happen if there is a long-term national economic emergency. Or if there is a major terrorist attack. Or if they lose their job. During these times, how will they provide for their family? More importantly, how will they feed their family?

They’re called Preppers, and the prepper mindset has now hit the mainstream. In a world where global economic collapse seems more likely everyday, everyday Americans are taking stock and stocking up. Just what are they stockup up on? Long term food storage, it’s what’s for dinner when all hell breaks loose. No longer the realm of fanatics, families make the decision to store food and water to help make it through a prolonged emergency.

Preppers are a group of self-sufficient men and women who make it their goal to be prepared when disaster strikes. From natural catastrophes to economic meltdowns to nuclear attacks, the preppers’ goal is simple. Carry on as usual, even when catastrophe strikes.

Over recent years, a huge community of preppers has developed. They are organized, researched, and happy to share their knowledge with others. Do a search on the web and you’ll find blogs, podcasts, forums, and YouTube videos on everything from food storage to how to survive a nuclear attack.

People are waking up to the fact that they cannot rely on the government for their personal safety and survival. Even the U.S. government is telling people to store a minimum of 3 days of food and water for every member of the family.

At the top of preppers list is a supply of food and water for their family. Here the possibilities are many. You can start by bring extra items home from the grocery store. Or you can get a 3 month supply of food for each member of your family. The Mormons encourage their congregations to have a years supply of food for each member of the family.

You can get take this to whatever you want. Just know that you will probably no longer be considered crazy if you made some preparations. Three years ago, economic collapse seemed far away. Today, it looks like it’s coming and there’s no stopping it.

Do your family a favor. Store food and water today before economic collapse occurs. Your family’s life will be so much easier when it does.

The United Arab Emirates is Stockpiling Food

Government Stockpiling Food in UAE

Food Market in the United Arab Emirates

In Dubai, the United Arab Emirates (UAE) government approved a plan to build up three-month stocks of rice, flour and other staples to boost food security following the European travel chaos that disrupted supplies, local daily the National reported.

“In cases of emergencies, states can stop exports to other countries … We can’t put all of our eggs in one basket,” Foreign Minister Sheikh Abdullah bin Zayed al-Nahyan was quoted as saying.

The shutdown of much of European airspace last week due to a huge cloud of volcanic ash paralysed air travel and disrupted the supply of food and other goods to the UAE and other Middle East countries.
