I've heard of these canned food kits. I heard about it months ago on the
RS list, and our stake has lately been making people aware of them. The
cannery most people in our stake use is the one in Hendersonville, TN (the
one Sandy & Melinda would us), and I know you can get them there though I
don't know what the cost for them is there. However, my friend and I are
planning on going down there together in the next month or so to get one of
these kits for each member of our families. They are a basic year's supply
for one person for roughly $25-30 per person...a good deal, in my book.
They will go along nicely with what we have, and give us the grain we need
to fill out our supply.
