Mormons and Food Stockpile questions
Any mormons on this board? I understand that most mormons stockpile up to a years worth of food. Is that true for all mormons? What about the ones who live in the suburbs? For instance, in my neighborhood we have a mormon church and a fairly good number of mormons living in our neighborhood, but the largest house around here is maybe 2300-2400 square feet and I am just wondering where they store all that food? Do you guys set aside a specific room in your house for food storage?

Re: Mormons and Food Stockpile questions
I am Mormon. Elder's Quorum presidency. Stockpiling food is very real in the Mormon church. All members do it. The prophets warned us about stockpiling 1 year food and water a few decades ago. The latest warning was to get out of debt and stop using credit.

I believe the prophet when he says stockpile food. We do it, but like many Mormon families, we don't have an eitre year's worth... maybe 3-4 months. We do have huge bags of grains and beans, etc. The church has events where we get together and churn butter, cook with raw grains and such, learn how to actually use these survival foods.

Mormons understand doom better than most.

Yes, I have heard of a lot of "furniture" being retrofitted to secure provisions. Side tables, coffee tables, Bed Frames.

But, I think most suburbanites are not as industrious. I don't even see people changing their own oil in my neighborhood. We do. We just did brakes, changed transmission fluid, fixed a crank shaft box on the transmission, oil, sparkplugs/wires for multiple cars including the in-laws.

So, I think they just stash it where they can. If they do. And presently, from the website on LDS.org. I think the church has pulled back on their recommendations of 2 years worth of food to 72 hrs kits plus 3 months of provisions. Only do more if you have the skill and money.

That is what I have observed in my very mormon neighborhood. But, since I don't know much about the insides of their homes, I really don't know.
There is a lot of room in 2400 sq feet to store food if you are creative.

All of my suburban neighbors have no clue about doom preparation. But EVERY SINGLE MORMON does, in this suburban neighborhood, we are the exceptions in terms of paying attention to preparation. That is why we also have firearms.

Thanks, yeah I wondering if you all really do store an entire years worth of food. Just seems like a lot of storage space to me and on top of that, making sure it does not go bad.

So, if something major happens where people start running out of food, will the mormons share with non-mormons? Ha ha!

Re: Mormons and Food Stockpile questions
That was a cheap shot and a lie about Mormons thinking it is alright to steal another's food if not a Mormon.

Mormon's share what they have with others. During the 1955 floods which devastated a good portion of the upper Sacramento Valley and it's towns, it was the Mormon church who opened their stores to citizens who resided there.

I suspect that is one reason for make it a years worth... not that we will need it for the whole year, but neighbors will most certainly come knocking when they smell what the Mormon man is cooking...

Re: Mormons and Food Stockpile questions
By far, a network of people is your most valuable asset. You can't be awake 24 hours to guard your house. You can have all the greatest guns and provisions stockpiled, but you will have to sleep. Someone has to guard your house while you sleep. That is why we will all form tribes. Those who already have the framework in place will snap into tribes with more efficiency.

Re: Mormons and Food Stockpile questions
Well the truth be told Mormons are told to store AT LEAST a years supply at very least - but anywhere from 3-7 years to be on the safe side, many members do not heed this strictly, and rationalize with getting just 48 hr packs because they are weak in their faith and slow to action.

I taught food storage classes & emergency preparedness, I had a three years supply myself before I moved and it does take up space but not as much as you would think.. Just like I have told all my clients, you have useless furniture in your home that if there were an emergency you would not be able to eat it, so get rid of the fancy china hutch that is useless and use that wall to store some food on.

You would be surprised where you can store extra food if packaged properly. Under beds, in closets, in basements, in spare rooms. Utilise and dedicate an area in your home, who cares what it looks like anyway, if we're going to be in a predicament where there is shortages of food then would you rather have a home stacked to the ceiling with boxes of food or fancy useless furniture. Get rid of your pride and how things should look and get real, we are in dangerous times now.

Wheat is probably the most cost effect thing you can buy that would sustain your life alone with just water, salt and sugar. All these items have an indefinite shelf life.

Make sure if you do get your wheat that you read up and learn how to sprout and how to plant it. It is life sustaining through it's different stages and get a good hand crank sturdy grinder in case there is no electricity, you can also have an electric one which is easier to use but like I always say, just pretend your back in time and live like the peasants did, they did it why can't you!

If you have any questions on what to store and it's shelf life or any other questions pertaining to food storage feel free to contact me at machinegunmomma@hotmail.com

Re: Mormons and Food Stockpile questions
Mormons are not the only people storing food and necessities. I have at least a years worth of food and I'm not a mormon. But I do have common sense and I do understand what is coming down the pike. Mormons have taught me a lot about food storage and prep.

As far as storage, it does help if you cook from scratch and not eat all the boxed foods. Most prepackaged foods you buy are more box then content. I live in small house, 1100 sq ft, you can come in my home and you will never see my food storage.

Food is also cheaper if you buy it in bulk and repackage into meal size containers. With 50 lbs of flour ($15.00), a bag of yeast($3.99)and dash of salt I can make 50-1 lb loaves of basic white bread. Can you buy 50 loaves of fresh bread for under $20?

With the addition of a few other baking items, baking powder, baking soda, sugar, dehydrated eggs and vegetable shorting you can take that same 50 lbs of flour and make pancakes, muffins, pies, cakes, cookies, biscuits, dumplings, noodles and the list goes on and on.

Its all in the planning not the volume of food.

Re: Mormons and Food Stockpile questions
Food Storage is not just for Doomsayers, it's just smart and wise to have on hand at all times extra food in case of the unknown period and will never be for NOT if you prepare properly and store thing you will use up and rotate or store things that have an indefinite shelf life.

You can also store Large bags of Oatmeal. However I would recommend that you store it in plastic bags then in a secure plastic container, this could draw rodents and the paper bags are easy for them to break into- adding bay leaf is always a good Idea as the sent keep them and bugs away.
Oatmeal can be made into flour then into breads and muffins. The quick cook Oatmeal can be prepare with cold water too if needed.

Also keep in mind when it comes to flour, you must remember it has a shelf life and goes rancid in a few years,it taste old and will not have much of a nutritional vale as much as the whole grains do, like (Red Hard or Winter White) that can just be ground when needed.

One Item I store plenty of is all ready made soups that can be eaten out of the can without the extra use of water, Kroger sells them for roughly $1.39 a can, which can be purchased in a slower fashion every time you go shopping, add some to your cart. I have been buying $20.00 worth every time I go shopping, it's convenient and has the mix of meats and veggies.

In my house, you will never see my food storage either, it's not necessary that you have it all in one room I was just suggesting for those that think they have no room, just take another look around, there are many possibilities.

Prepared chili- canned meats- canned vegetables & fruits are some other items you can store over time adding certain amounts to you storage each time you go shopping. Be sure to buy things that you do eat, that way you can rotate them using the older purchased items them re-placing them as you go.
A lot of people I have known give their food storage items to shelters before they expire,that way nothing goes to waste and if you can afford it and many can, just buy more of what you have given away to replenish you supplies.

When it comes to food storage, many people are clueless as to how much is needed and will be quite surprised when and if something happens where they depend on their food storage to survive as to how much they really have on hand to sustain them. For instance, when it comes to a years supply of grains you will need 300lbs PER PERSON
to survive on. Keep that in mind, just having a few cans on hand will not do the job for the long haul. I always recommend having your grains such as Wheat, Sugar & Salt enough for 1 year then move on and store your canned goods.

Here is some useful information on how much is need and extra information that links to my blog site on how much will be needed to store and self life information.
