If you are not or do not feel there is a need to store food, you are mistaken. Natural disasters alone is a cause to store food. Food storage cost $1.00 per day.
Stove Pellets Made from Grass
The process of pelletizing, revolves around the complex chemical compound present in all plant cell walls called lignin. Lignin is the glue between the plant cells. The force and pressure used to compress the grass into the die (of the pellet mill), produces heat. This heat turns the moisture contained within the grass into steam. The steam transports the lignin throughout the compacted grass and becomes the glue which cements the particles into pellets.
Canning Using Glass Containers Under Vacuum
Canning = Storing in glass containers
Canning using glass containers under vacuum, is the most efficient way of preserving/storing food which includes meat without refrigeration.
The worst part of this situation is that you cannot tell ANYONE that you have made preparations. The overwhelming majority of people simply will not take _any_ steps to prepare. And when disaster strikes, they will come knocking on YOUR door, begging for help.
Many of you will find yourselves in a situation where people you've known for years, come begging you for food and you'll face a stark choice: Feed THEM, or feed YOURSELF. They had a chance to prep but didn't. They made that choice, they have to live (or die) from it. Only the strong survive. The weak and weak-minded do not.
If you make the mistake of bragging or telling anyone that you're making preparations, they'll stick that in the back of their minds and do nothing, figuring they can come to YOU when the SHTF. And if you make yet another mistake of actually giving any of them food, THEY WILL TELL OTHERS! You'll quickly find yourself totally swamped by desperate, hungry, people. source
