Red Flashing Warning Signs Show The Coming Food Shortage Will Be Worse Than Originally Believed
Red Flashing Warning Signs Show The Coming Food Shortage Will Be Worse Than Originally Believed By Susan Duclos – All News PipeLine
From ‘Bugs For Human Consumption’ To Dire Warnings
A number of red flashing warnings signs have been getting brighter and flashing faster over the course of the past few weeks.
We knew that the food supply chain for the upcoming year would be stretched and somewhat limited in certain areas when the mid-west flooding decimated crop fields preventing many from planting on time, with others not being able to plant at all, so we warned to start gardening, indoors and out, to prepare to grow as much as possible yourself.
Those same floods killed ranchers’ livestock, so even meat would see a significant decrease in availability along with prices increasing.
Then an early freeze forced many farmers to harvest their crops before they were ready, causing even more of a shortage that wouldn’t be felt until the following year.
Readers were warned to plan smart, and learn how to can vegetables and fruits, even meats, and dehydration methods, even freeze drying garden harvests, in order to make the pain negligible for those with the foresight to have started back when the events were occurring.
Then came the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic and the “panic” shopping that immediately began.
COVID-19 BROKE AN ALREADY STRETCHED FOOD CHAIN
The Panic Shopping Began: ANP started receiving dozens upon dozens of photos from readers showing empty grocery shelves as panic shoppers, those completely unprepared for an extended length of time within their homes, buying up items faster than the stores could restock them, with some not having the products to restock with at all.
Amazon was forced to temporarily suspend their Prime Pantry service due to “high order volumes” tied to the coronavirus outbreak. Now, while you can order almost anything on Amazon, a look at delivery dates shows that the “In Stock” messages are a sneaky way to get orders but delivery in some cases are weeks or months away.
Amazon also started prioritizing the shipping and delivery of highly sought after products and “essential items,” as Walmarts began setting up a one-way in/one-way out entrance and exit system, while limiting amount of people allowed into the store at one time. Walmart has determined that they can decide for shoppers what is “essential” and what isn’t.

As Mike Adams over at Natural News discovered, those “essential” items do not include gardening supplies. That is right, the food supply in stores has taken a hit, yet Walmart is closing off whole sections, including gardening, from the public.
In order to get things restocked, stores have now wiped out much of the food reserves in the warehouses meant to store what they need to restock.
We are not the only ones noticing this, or being told it is going to get worse, as a recent Steve Quayle alert, dated April 6, 2020, notes:
FIRST ISSUE:Number1 is the food supply itself which is divided into 2 distinct issues . The first issue is that until the stay at home order and closing of restaurants the food supply of the USA was divided about 50% into retail sales (and packaging the products for retail sales) (PS such packaging costs more but the consumers expect it) and the other 50% was for food service industry (hotels restaurants and fast food places). This means that 50 percent of the available food in cold storage and dry storage in the distributor warehouses is not available for sale at this time to the public.
There is also the situation that the western half of the United States (west of the mississippi river) the warehouses for retail food sales are EMPTY of food products which can be sold in the grocery stores!!! The Eastern states are just behind the western states in warehouses. To be blunt the reserves have been used up (the reserves were set aside for the summer holidays and special holiday times) so now there is no reserve any place in the food supply chain. So available food must be redistributed until the full production of the food processing companies can be restarted with people who are not infected with the virus.
