Food Security

Americans are spoiled for the most part. We run to the grocery store without a second thought about where our food comes from. Much of our food is shipped miles and miles on trucks, planes, and trains.
On Sunday evening I watched 60 minutes and there was a segment on the hackers who could bring down or basic needs , stopping electricity, banking, internet, trucking and more. Today there was a big news release about Brazil's black out. Each of us should think about our food security and how our basic needs would be met in an emergency.

Growing some of our own food is an option that most of us can do and is not too hard to accomplish. Local food is fresher and better for us too.
Here is a web source where you can find local growers and suppliers.
