I've been reading this forum for a few years now, and I've always thought it odd that there is no enduring food discussion thread pinned at the top for consolidated all food planning questions and advice. We have pinned threads for communications, survival books, and other topics, but food - possibly the most essential item in a disaster preparation plan - isn't included among them. If one of the moderators sees fit to add such a thread, I thought I'd compile some links to related threads from the past and sources for food that people have recommended along the way. If there's enough interest, I can attempt to keep the first post updated with new additions to these subtopics as people add more to the discussion.

I'm sure there's a lot more that could be added to this - these are just a few interesting discussions and sources I've gleaned from this forum. I hope others are interested in a consolidated location for this sort of information.
