Greetings Friends, We were recently turned on to an awesome recource to help us with our food strage plan. I will say upfront that we are non LDS (mormom), but amdire their teaching in prperaredness and charity. We contacted the Knoxville LDS Home Storage Center yesterday to see if their services were available to the general pubic. We were told YES and invited to come down to the facility. The volunteer we spoke with also shared a website so we could figure out what we would like to purchase when we arrived. Seeing how it is only about 40 miles away, we took a road trip today. We were greeted by some extremly friendly and helpful folks. They gave us a tour of the entire facility and showed us their dry canning operation. Needless to say, we were very impressed with the set up, but were blown away with the folks we met. Today, we picked up 300lbs of wheat at a GREAT price. We also picked up a #10 can of hot cocoa and potaoe pearls. Sampled them tonight and both were awesome. We decided that we would be returning next week to do some dry canning. No matter what your religious preferences may be, this is a truley awesome service. Any serious prepper can learn a few things and get some great product from these folks. They welcomed us with open arms and we will be going back. Here is a link for their Homme Storage Center locations--check to see if there is one nearby you. Welfare locations If you find one close to you, you can download thier order form here for their current prices. Home Storage Center Order Form Give them a call to see what local rules they have for "guest" to use their facities and services. By the way, we were told by three different folks today to stock up before the 1st of the year because the prices will be increasing. We will let everyone know how our dry canning goes next week.
