Sandy:
I've heard of pre-packaged food kits, especially along the lines
of MRE's, but they're usually produced or distributed by a
third party company, such as Emergency Preparedness out of
Orem, UT.  I think you can get one person-year's worth of
rations so described for around $2500-3000.  Maybe a little
less when it's on sale.

Dan:
No, these are being put out by the Church Canneries, at least here in Mesa.
They consist of two boxes containing #10 cans of Wheat, Beans, Oatmeal, and
Powered Milk along with Sugar, Oil, Salt etc. The two boxes contain enough
food to feed an adult (supposably) for 1 month, and cost ~$26. We've been
getting a lot of encouragement from the Stake level to take advantage of
this, so was just wondering if anyone else had heard of it.

Sandy:
Which reminds me...how long would Chef Boyardee last as a
food storage item?  =)  Or canned goods, generally?  We
could probably start our food storage program with some
canned goods, some pasta, and a few bottles of Paul Newman
salad dressing . . .

>From what I've been hearing, not as long as you might think - At least from
a nutritional standpoint.
