Shelves were cleaned out. Anything that wasn’t tied down was purchased by those suffering the panic initiatied by watching the predictions of a major storm. I heard of one person who purchased 12 gallons of milk. People purchased enough bread to make peanut butter and jelly sandwiches from now ‘til the Second Coming. PLEASE…..
If you were victim to the panic attack, please don’t let the extra food spoil!! There are many organizations in town who would see that the extra food is put to good use. Flint HIlls Food Basket… Emergency Shelter… Call your church… Find someone who is on fixed income or is having a difficult time, financially. DO NOT hoard and see good food go to waste when so many would give thanks to have a full meal.
I’ve always suggested there is a conspiracy between the weather forecasters and the grocery industry. A couple times each year, a major storm is predicted and people rush to buy up groceries. Most of the time, the storm isn’t near what was predicted. But, the panic attack sets in an people hoard food.
Pay it forward!!! Donate… Don’t dump!!!!!
