What's the single best method for you to prepare for food shortages?
Buy in lots of tins and make sure you've got a tin opener!!! Seriously, if you're talking about food shortages on a national or international level then I would say try to start growing / producing as much of your own food as possible.
canning, dehydrating and bottling. storing food in a cool dry place that is easily accesable but not in a place where others will find it.
Learn how to enjoy eating bugs, grubs and roots? If the Ozone layer depletes and the sun is cooking on the veges - with no rain - then growing your own garden wouldn't work, - and Hey! - can always do what that old couple in the movie "The book of Eli" did - eat people and call it ham.............
Depressing isn't it?
In the movie - they were looking for shaky hands as evidence of eating human flesh, look up Prion diseases (transmissible spongiform encephalopathies)
Rice can be stored for a long, long time if in waterproof containers and will cook up to much larger quantities than when dry. Similarly dried beans have been a staple for centuries.
The thing is... how long do you think you will have to hold out?
