America faces a hunger and nutrition crisis unlike any this country has seen in generations. Today 14 million children are missing meals on a regular basis – a statistic that’s five times worse than before the Covid-19 pandemic. It’s even worse for Latino and Black families, which have seen rates of nutrition insecurity spike to 25% and 30%, respectively.
In many ways, Covid-19 has boiled over long-simmering problems plaguing America’s food system. What began as a public health crisis fuelled an economic crisis, leaving 33 percent of families unable to afford the amount or quality of food they want. School closures put 30 million students at risk of losing the meals they need to learn and thrive. Source

Food is currently increasing in price as producing countries have experienced disasters on many fronts, a lack of crop pickers, the shutdown of abetoirs due to COVID testing and other factors
This food crisis does not seem as prevelent in the UK at this current moment [Nov 2020], but looking further afield warns us to prepare with the goal of providing food security for your family, your community collective, or yourself.
Prepping isn't just for the hard core, we can all learn new skills, or stock a little extra long storage food items, and think about water or kooking facilities should a disaster hit the UK.
Example foods that have the longest shelf life that you may be buying anyway that could provide good nutrition:
- Dried Pasta
- Lentils and Legumes
- Dried Beans
- Dehydrated fruit and Vegatables
- Dried Potato
- Canned Meat & Fish
