Food News

Think again Moms, - here is news that affects your next trip to the grocery store.
I cannot urge you enough, my friends, please consider the wisdom of building up food storage and preparing yourself  and family.   Weather alone may be enough to bring unexpected devastation to your area. Even if it doesn’t touch your town, - it may change your life.
