Is the U.S. government stockpiling huge amounts of food and supplies in anticipation that something bad is about to happen? Is something about to cause a major economic crisis that will require large quantities of emergency food?
For a while, I have been hearing things about the government storing food through the grapevine and I have not been sure what to think about those rumors. Well, today I received a phone call that blew me away. I debated for quite a while before I decided whether or not to share this information with you all. Normally I do not like to talk about anything unless I am able to prove it by pointing to an article in the mainstream media. But the source of the information that I am about to share with you is rock solid. I cannot reveal his name, so you will just have to trust me on that. Hopefully the following information will be one more “dot” as we all try to connect the dots about what is really going on out there.
This morning I received a call from a very prominent person in the storable food industry. He has asked me not to reveal his name. I have been dealing with him for an extended period of time and I consider him to be a rock-solid source. When I talked to him today, he had just received a huge order for storable food from a U.S. government source. He told me that the dollar amount of the order was in the “five figures”.
When he asked about why so much food was being ordered, the government source told him essentially that “you know what is coming”. When pushed further, the government official did not elaborate.
It was unclear whether this was part of a larger food stockpiling program by the government. Perhaps this order was just part of the normal preparations that government agencies make for potential emergencies.
Nobody could blame the government for storing up some emergency food. That is something that we all should be doing.
The truth is that the government is taking emergency preparedness very seriously these days. For example, you can see video of a high-level NASA official urging NASA employees to develop preparedness plans for their own families, Jun 11, 2011:
But what if this is a sign of something bigger?
Remember, this is not some rumor I just pulled off the Internet. This is not something that someone got from “an aunt” somewhere.
I got this information over the telephone from the person who took the order.
I promised that I would not reveal any more specific details, so I won’t.
But this does seem to fit with a pattern that we are beginning to see emerge.
Earlier this year, FEMA issued an RFI (Request For Information) that inquired about the availability of 140 million meals of emergency food. Apparently the food was meant to be stored up in case there was a “catastrophic disaster event” along the New Madrid Fault.
The following is an excerpt….
The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) procures and stores pre-packaged commercial meals to support readiness capability for immediate distribution to disaster survivors routinely. The purpose of this Request for Information is to identify sources of supply for meals in support of disaster relief efforts based on a catastrophic disaster event within the New Madrid Fault System for a survivor population of 7M to be utilized for the sustainment of life during a 10-day period of operations. FEMA is considering the following specifications (14M meals per day):
– Serving Size – 12 ounce (entree not to exceed 480 calorie count);
– Maximum calories – 1200 and/or 1165 per meal;
– Protein parameters – 29g-37g kit;
– Trans Fat – 0;
– Saturated Fat – 13 grams (9 calories per gram);
– Total Fat – 47 grams (less than 10% calories);
– Maximum sodium – 800-930 mg;
Requested Menus to include snacks (i.e. fruit mix, candy, chocolate/peanut butter squeezers, drink mix, condiments, and utensils). All meals/kits must have 36 months of remaining shelf life upon delivery. Packaging should be environmentally friendly.
Mysteriously, seven days later this RFI was cancelled.

Unfortunately, shortages have not been limited to storable food. Most Americans don’t realize this, but there is a significant shortage of certain pharmaceutical drugs in many areas of the country right now.
This from ABC JUST 9/23/2011, the same time THIS report came out!…

The article is well written, and well referrenced. With that being said, I believe the author’s source and find it to be accurate. I invite you to formulate your own opinion on it, but IMHO if this is true this is indeed another cog of truth in the conspiracy engine to show Americans that the U.S. Government is indeed preparing, as it has warned us to do.
I have followed ATS for 12 years & find them to be beyond credible. Go to this link for their comprehensive research & MUST read comments on this article.
From my best survival source, which you can find in the dropdown menu, David Morris had this to say:
As you already know, a food shortage can be brought on by a number of causes ranging from natural disasters and economic collapse to terror attacks and war.
When we see these situations occur on TV the news always covers the people who are completely dependent on the kindness and generosity of others who show up to the rescue. While heartwarming to see people helping each other, it’s not a plan that secures your
If a situation is bad enough these knights in shining armor will not show up and it’s not their responsibility to either.
I leave you with the fact we all know JUST listening to the news everyday, the dire shape the world is in. This administration is blatantly trying to collapse us from within. We cannot discount any report such as this, which many may call conspiracy, over reaching or melodramatic. If you feel that, please leave room for doubt & be prepared. What will it hurt? ~ JP
