    Question Where to get food stores in bulk

    Where can I buy food in bulk? Items like rice, beans, canned vegetables, flour, Mre's etc.
    Years ago you could get things from the cannery in Newport TN, Tomatoes from Canton, NC, peaches from SC, potatoes from Hendersonville NC, apples from Waynesville NC. Does anybody know if these places are still in business? Trying to build up a food stockpile and I just can't afford the expensive internet stores. I want to be sure I can eat when the economy goes south. Too late. Ok I want to get some food stored before a loaf of bread cost a days wages.

    Thanks

    you NEED to make your own super pails. it is the only way to go!! #10 cans have become priced rite out if sight.
    buckets can be found for free, OR I bought them from U-LINE with lids. metalized bags can be found all over. I got them from USA esentials.
    metalized bags can be got from BE-PREPAIRED .com, along with oxygen absorbers. I even nitrogen purged the bags with the oxygen absorbers too. a nitrogen cylinder was cheap to rent.
    Metalized bags, oxygen absorbers, nitrogen will keep very dry food for a LONG TIME!!!
    plastic buckets will protect the bags and are essential.
    now you need the product, HONEYVILL GRAIN is a great place to start looking for quantity at a good price.
    I suggest you use bags about 1 - 1, 1/2 gallon in size this way things will not spoil when you open them before you finish them.
    we have "bucketed" with friends on a saturday and made it fun, I have also bucketed by myself.
    I suggest you get your bucketing supplies togeather, then buy a sack of oatmeal, and a sack of rice. and see how it goes for you.
    any questions feel free to ask I will help any way I can.

    FOOD IS GOOD QUALITY AND CHEAP rite now, this WILL NOT allways be the case!!!! take advantage of it. their is no limit of choises you can put in thies buckets.
    do a sack a week, start with essentials, then move on to nice things too they make life worth living.
    I opened a bag of honeyville brown sugar today I bucketed up a couple years ago. still fresh, soft, smells GREAT.
    anything freeze dried is great to bucket and will last for decades!!!
    we have found fruits, vegies, and meat all freeze dried and bucketed it.
    again after you have some life sustaining items, things like hunny, fruit, on and on, make life so much better that just and only rice.

    sorry for rambeling , but I have done this for YEARS now.

    I get a lot of my supplies from the same place that supplies the local restraunts. The one here is called "Cash and Carry". Ask your local greasy spoon where they get their groceries.

    Another great source is the Mormons cannery. They store food as a daily routine. They don't seem to mind sharing their supplies with the rest of us. Get to know one of your local Mormons, great resource.

    Costco/Sams club has a lot of stuff too - just make sure you price check.

    +1 on having mormon friends. Check out the LDS web site.
    Also +1 on costco/sams club
