Shelf stable meal ideas...Corona virus spinoff in The Chat Board Posted 18 hours ago · Report reply On 2/14/2020 at 8:54 PM, fairfarmhand said: If I’m not mistaken I think the op means “what if they tell us to stay home while a pandemic occurs.” Yes, this. I should've been more specific in the title. I included Cronovirus spinoff, but didn't explain further. On 2/15/2020 at 6:43 AM, Carrie12345 said: Yes, I took it as a “stay home” situation. That said, if we’re playing What If, any slow down in interstate transportation would cause big food issues. We had *minor food supply issues during Sandy, nowhere near the center of it. And I really do mean minor (primarily dairy products), but it made me realize how delicate our system actually is. Agreed. We live in tornado alley and I was shockingly unprepared during last year's season. This could turn into something scary and I would like to be prepared with at least the basics. MRE's are great, but having a few basics my family knows and loves or at least tolerates would be spectacular. I suspect if an all out pandemic broke out, one would need more than just a couple of weeks of basics food rations.
