Alaska Renews Push to Amass Emergency Food Stocks

from Alaska is renewing an effort to secure a massive stockpile of emergency food supplies to be ready in case a major disaster cuts the state off from supply lines. Gov. Sean Parnell has promoted emergency preparations — including urging individuals and families to make plans of their own — as part of a larger push to improve disaster readiness across Alaska. The state ultimately hopes to secure enough food to feed 40,000 people three meals a day for seven days.
