Massive Food Storage Will Be Found Here…

Consider this… IF we were to ever experience a true SHTF collapse in this nation, most of us know that within days… FOOD will be of the utmost concern.

Where will this food be?

A supply will exist in all of our local grocery stores… for about 3 days to a week (without resupply).

A supply will exist in the transportation network trucks who were traveling to resupply the grocery stores.

And a massive quantity of food will exist in a place that most people will not be aware of.
And that place is…


 

…in the Grocery Distribution Centers that supply all of the retail grocery stores.

I’ll bet that many people do not realize the amount of food that is held in these distribution centers. And, I’ll bet that not many people even realize that their grocery store food comes from these distribution centers. It just magically appears on their shelves…

Walmart’s U.S. distribution network is massive. There are approximately 140 distribution centers totaling 114 million square feet. The combined distribution centers and retail space total 950 million square feet. That’s about 1.5 times larger than that of Manhattan!

To the best of my research, Walmart today has 41 operating Grocery Distribution Centers which supply all of their retail super-center stores with groceries and perishables.

While there will be massive spoilage of fresh food during a true SHTF scenario, these distribution centers will still contain massive amounts of other food. It is interesting to note the locations of all the Walmart Grocery Distribution Centers in the United States which I have listed here for your reference.

Note: We do not advocate looting in any way, shape, or form… rather, to be prepared and self-sufficient PRIOR to a collapse is the obvious (for most) solution.

What we are pointing out is that should we suffer a terrible worst-case-scenario SHTF collapse, there will be pockets of resources out there (until they are gone) beyond that of simply the obvious. Think beyond your normalcy.

Also be aware that in a collapsed world, these resources will likely be claimed rapidly and held by force.

Another benefit to understanding the underlying distribution network, is to realize how most people absolutely rely on these unseen networks for their survival (and they don’t even realize it).

We must understand the risks that we face; and while many of them are unseen and behind the scenes, these systems will be disrupted and/or collapsed themselves following a worst-case-scenario SHTF collapse.
