Food Rationing Is New Reality
Spoiled for choice before the pandemic, North American shoppers are finding they can’t get everything they want as grocery stores ration in-demand items to safeguard supplies.

While the panic that swept through supermarkets in the first weeks of the coronavirus lockdowns has eased, people are still filling fridges and pantries with stay-at-home staples from flour and yeast to pasta sauce and meat.

The strong demand comes at a time of supply disruptions as food makers adapt to dramatic shifts in buying patterns and some processing plants close as workers fall ill. As a result, stores are restricting purchases to prevent items from vanishing from shelves. For shoppers, that can be unnerving. ...

Jim, I live on the East Coast, and most of the meat in the aisle is from sources closer to home.

Still, my wife & I are concerned about what might happen if the supply chain of our food and regularly used supplies is disrupted at any point. We are not in a position to live off the land here or grow our own food to any extent.

But we aren't starving by any means and the Lord has blessed us with food on the table each meal.

There are now six confirmed COVID-19 cases associated with Smithfield Foods.

Additional cases of COVID-19 have also been confirmed at the Tyson Foods plant in Madison....
excerpt from,"New COVID-19 cases tied to food production plants in Crete, Madison"

QC, I have been mainly talking about Nebraska, which is one of the main meat producing states in the country. But as I also pointed out about the meat packer in Iowa another Tyson plant, it is somewhat widespread. I think they're going to try to keep the packing plants open as long as they can. So I don't know if we'll have meet racing in or not.

Anyway some of our hardest hit counties and the hardest hit one all contain meat packing plants those that don't contain large cities.

Depends on the source of your meats, Jim.

That doctor you spoke with is likely right, Wayfarer. And you are undoubtedly right about the removal of small business from much of the American landscape for the foreseeable future.

Amen, Mike.

...Tyson Foods suspended operations Wednesday at an Iowa plant that is critical to the nation’s pork supply but had been blamed for fueling a massive coronavirus outbreak in the community.

The plant can process 19,500 hogs per day, accounting for nearly 4% of U.S. pork processing capacity, according to the National Pork Board.
“Despite our continued efforts to keep our people safe while fulfilling our critical role of feeding American families, the combination of worker absenteeism, COVID-19 cases and community concerns has resulted in our decision to stop production," said Steve Stouffer, group president of Tyson Fresh Meats....

Your meats are going to cost a whole lot more nothing else 👎

I don’t know about rationing, but through stores having reduced opening hours, and more frequent deliveries the previous shortages have been remedied, and except for hand gel, most things are back on the shelves.

However, what I have noticed here in Britain, that as well as many of the main big chains competely closing their restaurants for take away as well as sit down, some of the small ones that carried on with takeaway only (no cash basis), for about 2 weeks into the lockdown, even some of these have now completely closed.

The London buses that all have rear doors, no longer expect people to touch in their card, but have taped up the driver’s area, front door remains closed, and everyone enters and leaves by the rear door.

One good thing, some Anglican vicars have objected to the complete closure of churches, so now their bishops are allowing them to resume streaming services from the church building rather than their private home, as previously required.

However, it does seem that when all these places open in some months, people will still have to distance, old people banned from going and masks probably to be worn, for at least another six months to a year!!!

The employees that test positive for Covid is what happens during a pandemic in close quarters. There isn’t transmission from worker to food to table. There isn’t a food shortage, there is a slow down in food production. But we’re still operating on the the “ then what” decision making. The reason Sweden did not hide in place was they believe that the only way for people to build an immunity is to be exposed to Covid. Quite honestly, the doctor I talked to said most everyone will get Covid in their life time . Hopefully there will be a vaccine like the H1n1 flu. But hide in place, buys time till we sort out a plan. I’m just frustrated that we’re in a small business ghost town. Between 30% -60% of all restaurants will close.

i would like to thank anyone who prayed for me, i am feeling stronger and wanted to relate 2 dreams i had a year before God gave us a house, i had been praying for a house, we rented, and i had 2 dreams, the first one was where i was walking through an almost empty store with my husband because of few people in it, the shelves were mostly empty and what they did have i could not afford, and i was weeping, so sad about it all, could not stop crying ...
the other one was standing on a street and black helicopters were flying in, these were definitely military and were like "flying to war" as they flew in big wooden ships falling from the sky,crashing to earth one next to us, they looked like childish depictions of Noah's Ark's, then the helicopters flew back where they came from, they left, they flew away.
from my dreams i believe this won't last forever, but we will endure dearth for a time, maybe it's not the trib, just sorrows and birth pains, contractions getting closer and more painful ....

Socialism makes it inevitable. That's why it must not be allowed to take deep root. It's trying hard, what with the covid19 excuse being used. What we see in stores becomes continual if the left gets its way.

Packing plants around the country are being affected for example.

LEXINGTON, Neb. (KNOP) - In the last two days, Two Rivers Public Health District has reported an increase of 129 positive COVID-19 cases in Dawson County. Last week, the Nebraska National Guard was in Lexington conducting tests on emergency personnel and workers at the Tyson Meat Packing Plant. In total, 238 tests were conducted over two days, and approximately 50 percent of those tests came back positive.

Dawson County has seen an increase of 129 positive cases of COVID-19 over the last two days, and now has the most cases per 10,000 residents of any county in Nebraska.

Members of the Lexington community are concerned about the disclosure and transparency shown by Tyson Foods about the situation in the city.

While Tyson has implemented conditions to keep their workers safe, they were only implemented recently, and workers want more protections in place....

excerpt from, "Lexington community concerned amid COVID outbreak in Dawson County"

This seems to be happening all over the country❗👎
